Artocarpus anisophyllus, the entawak or mentawa, is a round, 3-4", brown yellow fruit. The Entawak's flesh is orange-red and may taste like a pumpkin in flavor, while it also has edible seeds which are commonly roasted, salted and eaten. Rarely cultivated in its native range. It is a large rainforest tree growing up to 45 metres. The fruit is eaten fresh and its propagation is by seeds. Entawak is a native to Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo and intervening islands. It is also a distant relative to the well known jackfruit, breadfruit, and the tasty tarap fruit which it is closest related to. It is propagated by seeds, grafting, cuttings and many other useful methods. It can grows exceedingly well in tropical climates as it cannot grow in subtropical climates . When grown from seed the germination may take 1-3 months and it will probably bear fruit within 8-9 years. It cannot survive temperatures below 50 degrees and enjoys 70 degrees+ temperatures.
