Langsat (Lansium Parasiticum): A Tropical Delight with Skin and Energy Benefits.

Planting and Care

The langsat is ultra-tropical. It needs a humid atmosphere, plenty of moisture and will not tolerate long dry seasons. Some shade is beneficial especially during the early years.

Special Feature

Langsat being high in vitamin A keeps eyes, skin, skeletal tissues, and mucous membranes healthy. It also contains many powerful antioxidants that fight cells' free radical damages.


The bark is used to treat dysentery and malaria; the powdered bark can also be used to treat scorpion stings. The fruit's skin is used to treat diarrhea, and in the Philippines the dried skin is burned as a mosquito repellent. The skin, especially of the langsat variety, can be dried and burned as incense.
