Legislator Going For Duku

A LEGISLATOR from Luzon, after seeing the young fruits of Duku lanzones in our web site, suddenly thought of going into commercial planting of this fruit tree. He ordered an initial 200 grafted planting materials to be followed by another batch later.
Duku has a very nice flavor. The fruit clusters are not as compact as those of the Longkong but in a way that is an advantage. There is better ventilation between the fruits. The skin is thicker than that of Longkong so that it has a longer shelf life.

Nevertheless, while the skin is thicker, the fruit is very easy to open by just pressing it between the thumb and the index finger. The fruit is without latex  so it is not messy to eat. It will not stain your fingers.
