A favorite fruit from childhood is Lanzones … Lanzones is fruit which has similar appearance with grape. Lanzones originally comes from South East Asia, specifically Malaysia.
Overall, there are two main groups of cultivars, those named duku and those named langsat.
There are also mixed duku-langsat varieties. The individual fruit are large, generally round, and have somewhat thick skin that does not release sap when cooked. The seeds are small, with thick flesh, a sweet scent, and a sweet or sour alin.
The bunches are longer, and each bunch holds between 15 and 25 large, egg-shaped fruit. The skin is thin and releases a white sap when cooked. The flesh is watery and tastes sweet and sour. The fruit tends to be small, with thin skin and little sap; the skin is difficult to remove.
To be eaten, the fruit is bitten and the flesh sucked through the hole created, or rubbed until the skin breaks and the seeds are retrieved.
In Indonesia the fruit has several names, including kokosan, pisitan, pijetan, and bijitan. Reproduction The seeds of L.
Production often varies from year to year, and depends to some extent on having a dry period to induce flowering.
One example of ten trees in Costa Rica about twenty-five years old produced during five years the following weights of salable fruits: Experiments in the Philippines with grafting where two trees are planted close to each other and then grafted when one to two meters tall to leave twin root systems on a single main trunk have resulted in earlier and less erratic fruit production.
Another common method is by air layering. Although the process requires up to several months, the new rooted tree produced is itself ready to bear fruit within two years.
Trees cultivated with this method have a high death rate, and the growths are less resilient. This results in the new trees having the same genetic characteristics as their parent, and being ready to bear fruit within 5 to 6 years.
The offspring are relatively stronger than transplanted shoots. The plant, especially the duku variant, prefers damp, shaded areas.
It can be grown in the same agroforest as durianpetaiand jengkolas well as wood-producing trees. The plant can grow and blossom in latosolyellow podzoland alluvium. The langsat variant is hardier, and can weather dry seasons with a little shade and water.
This period can vary between areas, but blooming is generally after the beginning of the rainy season and fruit production some four months later. Distribution Lansium parasiticum was originally native to Peninsular Malaysia. Can be found in Sulawesi and Sarawak, Northern Borneo, the name Duku is reserved for the larger-sized varieties of Langsat, near the size of golf balls, claimed sweeter and with less sap in the peel.
A variety called Dokong exported to mainland Malaysia from Thailand this variety is called 'Longkong' Thai: Within mainland Asiathe tree is cultivated in Thailand Thai: Outside the region, it has also been successfully transplanted and introduced to Hawaii and Surinam.
A major hindrance to its acceptance seems to be that it is very slow in bearing, said to take 12 years or more from seed.
However, air layering from mature trees, as well as grafting, are said to work well and produce much faster. The fruit can also be bottled in syrup. The bitter seeds can be pounded and mixed with water to make a deworming and ulcer medication. The bark is used to treat dysentery and malaria ; the powdered bark can also be used to treat scorpion stings.Lanzones' Health Benefits Lavender Oil Malunggay (Moringa Oleifera), Health Benefits Repellent - Homemade Mosquito Repellent (also for ants & fleas) Soursop or Guyabano Denge--The Following are the Natural Cure for Dengue K 1 0.

DEET: Potent, But Safe One of the most effective mosquito repellents is one of the oldest around. Objectives This project aims to: • make a mosquito coil out of lanzones peelings, • make an organic, chemical-free mosquito coil, • produce a useful product using biodegradable waste, producing a mosquito-repellent smoke.
Lanzones is a medium-sized. Natural compounds that repel mosquitoes are produced by Lanzones peelings and when combined with starch will produce a mosquito coil raw materials It is possible to create a mosquito coil out of lanzones peelings because its skin has a certain compound which is the white sap that contains triterpenes, a mosquito repelling acid.
