Bob starts with ...
I have just cut down a huge Jackfruit tree with watermelon shape and size fruits that never ripened properly.
I am after the large oval shaped fruit similar to Asian varities on trees that dont reach for the heavens.
I have seen many Vietamese homes in Brisbane with trees 4- 5 metres tall laden with fruit, I am after such a tree ( large fruit reasonable size height tree)

Hi bob,
I like Jackfruit too. you can't eat fruit just cut from the tree.Before you cut down fruit you need to touch fruit first, when it is ripe it touch soft or you can smell some flavour from fruit itself. and more important you need to keep a couple days to let them ripe totally after cutting. anyway, there are so many varieties jackfruit tree, you need to find one with crunch texture. I just grow a few trees in my garden it may take 10 years to grow fruits as i grow them from the seed, if you like I can give one for you or you can also to get in upper Mt gravatt sunday market, one vietamese men sale trees there sometimes. hoping you can get one soon.

A grafted crisp variety would ensure good quality fruit, and the graft generally stunts the tree. However, it can sometimes delay fruiting in Jakfruit. Most seedlings are supposed to come fairly true to type, so seedlings of a good crisp Jak should turn out to be similar, even if they are not so good in their first few years.

You'll need to prune most Jaks to keep to a reasonable size. Here's a pretty good video from the big tropical fruit gardens in Florida that is very instructional:

It is true that jackfruit are often true to type but grafted ones are more productive,reliably good and smaller.They also fruit sooner.Pruning to around 2.5m is possible with nearly all varieties.The qualities after taste that are most prized are less latex,more flesh yield,high productivity and crisp orange flesh.Many seedlings have sloppy yellow flesh and a festival of latex and rag.

Thanks for this information on the Jack fruit tree , as I have just cut down a huge Jack fruit tree that produced small round fruit not unlike a small soccer ball but never ripened and never set seeds or mature fruit.
I was looking for the long ovate shape fruit like the ones in Asia
