PKM2 is an improvement over PKM-1 with more lateral branching, desirable for production of more leaves at a lower height for ease of harvesting, and pods with more flesh than seeds. It produces an average of 240 fruits per tree with an average yield of 98 tonnnes/ha. The pods can be harvested in 7-8 months from planting and are long, about 125-130 cm with a girth of 8.40 cm and an average weight about 280 g. They are fleshy (70% flesh), with lower fiber and good cooking quality. Each tree produces about 220 pods per tree and they have an average pod yield of 98 tons per hectare, seeds less than 1 ton.
