Kwai Muk (Artocarpus hypargyraeus)
The Kwai Muk, or Strawberry Apricot Pineapple, is a slow-growing, evergreen fruiting tree in the Moraceae family, along with Jackfruit, Figs, and Mulberries. Native to Southern China, the container-friendly plant sports ornamental canopies of dense foliage atop milky, latex bark. Bearing a thin-skinned, slightly irregular fruit with orange-red, soft, sub-acid flesh, the Kwai Muk fruit has long been popular for consumption in Asia, but is lesser known elsewhere. Known for its pleasant pulp eaten out of hand and handsome ornamental qualities, the scrumptious tree is bound to create conversation amongst any exotic tree collector.
