Harvest over 100 pounds of fruit every season

The Jackfruit is easy to spot with its unique green rind that’s covered with soft spikes and its large oblong shape. Since Jackfruits can weigh anywhere between ten to fifty pounds, they stand out against smaller tropical fruit. Once they’re spotted, they quickly sell out because people can’t get enough of this versatile, delicious fruit.

The Jackfruit is an excellent source of nutrition because they contain protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium and more to fuel your body with energy and to naturally boost your immune system. 

Once a Jackfruit is cut open you can pick their rich, creamy flesh away from the seeds to enjoy for a fresh, juicy snack. The pulp tastes like a sweet banana mixed with the tang of mango and pineapples. It’s perfect for adding to smoothies and ice cream. When this tropical fruit turns from a shade of yellow to light green then its flesh is at its sweetest and softest point. 

When cooked in a pan or on the grill like barbecue, it gains the texture and flavor of pulled pork, serving as a delicious meat substitute. They’re popular to use in curry, tacos, sandwiches and more.  

While Jackfruit Trees are native to warm tropical climates, they also love growing indoors. If you live outside of growing zones 9 – 11, place your tree in a container and bring it indoors for the winter. Once it warms up again, place your tree back outdoors to soak up some rays. 

Their glossy, wide and flat tropical leaves will add bursts of color to your favorite room. Plus, the Jackfruit’s beauty only intensifies when they erupt with large green blooms every spring, before turning into large, unique fruit.

Jackfruit Trees are tough and low maintenance. They only need to sit by a large sunny window and need little water to thrive while producing tons of healthy and savory fruit. 

Jackfruit Tree Pollination

Jackfruit Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Jackfruit Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Replacement tree
This tre was delivered on time in perfect condition. It had plenty of leaves and buds.
I unpacked it and kept it in the container for almost a week. I placed it where I intended to plant it. I gave it a fair amount of water each day.
I planted it this morning in rich soil. Some leaves are opening and growing. With water eac day and lots of sun, we'll see how it does. So far , so good.

My new Jackfruit tree is growing like wildfire in Austin Texas!
At first I was not sure about buying the tree online in fact most of the people I spoke to said no no no don't do it but when they came it was in perfect health and right now it is growing explosively. I purchased a young Jackfruit tree period i repotted it in a much larger pot and I placed it underneath a large tree to help it acclimate to the harsh Texas environment. Right now it has new growth all over it and is literally already several inches taller. I have been babying it with Rainwater and I have to say I am very happy with my purchase. I am thinking about what else I want to put in my yard and I will definitely be ordering from you again.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Jackfruit Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Jackfruit Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Jackfruit Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Jackfruit Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Love jackfruit but hesitate to grow although we live in zone 9. Since your nursery guarantee one year survival, I hope it will survive at least first year so we don't have to return for refund or replacement.
