Comments. The popularity of the langsat is somewhat hindered by the long time it takes for trees to begin to bear fruit. Trees grown from seed can take 10-30 years to start bearing fruit. Air layering or grafting produces faster-producing trees.

Several cultivars of the langsat exist. The ‘Duku’ variety has large fruits 3-5 cm (1.2-2 in) in diameter with little or no latex and a sweet, aromatic pulp. The ‘Longkong’ variety from Thailand has smaller fruits, 3 cm (1.2 in) wide, with leathery skin, sweet pulp, no latex, and few or no seeds. The main producers of langsat fruits are Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
