This is what we have been wanting for so long! For the first time in NZ we will soon be able to offer you an exotic plant Lanzones or Duku Langsat!
Duku Langsat is a cross between a Duku and a Longkong Langsat creating a superior variant. This variant is super rare and extremely hard to find. Duku Langsat fruits are MUCH LARGER than Langsat, averaging 3-7cm in diameter, and are round to slightly oval in shape, growing in large clusters of approximately ten fruit.
The flesh is thick, translucent-white, and is typically divided into 1-5 segments. These segments are juicy, tender and soft with a texture similar to grapes. The flesh may be seedless or contain a few seeds. Duku Langsat fruits are sour when young, but as they mature, the fruits develop a sweet-tarty flavour with light acidity, reminiscent of lychee and pomelo.
Prefer shaded area. Grow well under taller trees.
Need a lot of water at summer time and when young and establishing, less water during winter.
To ensure successful fruiting, plant in well-drained fertile soil. Incorporate a good compost and keep mulched.
NPK 14-14-14 is ideal. But any organic fruiting fertiliser will be ok. They love farm manure at time of planting and again every few months.
Not very wind tolerant when young seedlings, but will be okay once established.
Cold tolerant to 15c as a mature plants. A light frost is ok once established but need to protect young seedlings for at least the first 4 years need to be under cover from rain.
6-7 years from seedlings and up to 10 years in some cases considering the climate in NZ.
Will do well with pruning once the plant is about 1m high and encourages the branch to grow sideways. Pull any suckers out and remove the dead branches.
