(Deutsche Beschreibung in Kürze verfügbar) The Cempedak is a fruit which is quickly gaining in popularity. The flavor can be compared to a mixture of Durians and Mangos, with an odor reminiscent of jackfruit but much less potent. The arils around the seeds are soft and mushy but very sweet. Plants mature quickly and trees started from seed begin to bear in as few as three years. Cempedak thrives in hot humid environments but is virtually unknown in the American and African tropics, where it could be a fruit tree with great potential.
