Best not planted where people are active underneath the tree as the fruits weigh up to 7Kg each! The fruit is used for some medical skin benefits and the tree is considered sacred by many communities. Only useful as a novelty in the UK but may be suitable for amy region that is frost free and quite cool tolerant.
