JAKFRUIT - SEEDLING

Jakfruit arils close upBotanical Name: Artocarpus heterophyllus
Description

A very handsome evergreen, reaching a height of 8 - 15 metres and bearing the worlds largest fruit. Fruits can weigh up to 20kg. Strong odour but is deliciously sweet. It can be eaten fresh or dried. Very quick growing and usually starts fruiting in 4th year. Cincturing can help earlier fruiting. There is an old Sri Lankan proverb that says, “with jak and coconut in your backyard you will never starve”. This is because every part of the jackfruit tree is useful. Unripe jackfruit can be cooked with chicken, fish and eggs, and ripe ones can be eaten as-is or processed into drinks, jam, jelly or candy. The same applies to other parts of the tree such as the skin, leaves, flowers, wood and latex which have their own uses and benefits.

Ardy, i brother lives in Cabramatta and his jakfruit tree is thriving. They slow down during winter but still alive but otherwise in good health and as soon as the weather warms up, they shot! | Trang Le - Punchbowl, NSW 13-May-2010

Ok you want to grow a jackfruit tree well I have found that you need to mulch heaverly at least a bail of hay per tree water deeply during the growing season and buy a bag of nitrophoska and apply abot 150 grams 3 times a year over mulch and water well in | Trevor Garrad - Bundaberg , QLD 20-Nov-2010

Jakfruit

When cleaning Jack fruit, have a prefered cooking oil (eg. vegetable oil) on hand to contantly keep your hands & knife coated with oil. This is to prevent the sticky substance from making a sticky mess in the kitchen :-) | Sarah Vasquez - Los Angeles, CA 13-Dec-2010

I like the jakfruit as it is different and 'outside the square' - usually visitors to my garden have never seen one and it prompts discussion about fruit trees and gardening in general. In addition it tastes heavenly and is easy to grow and fruits easily with very little care!

Jakfruit tastes great but is rather expensive to buy in Sydney, so decided to try growing it. The tree likes plenty of water, but we don't have a suitable location so it took a while of TLC to get the tree to grow large enough to start producing fruit. We found that the tree initially produced many male fruits (smooth skin) which go mouldy and drop off, and it took a long time before we got the first female fruit (rougher skin) - took about 13 years. The fruit grew well and to a large size. Unfortunately, it ripened and dropped to the ground during our 2-week absence on holidays so we didn't get to taste it.

Buut now our second tree which was planted in 2008 has 4 jakfruits (2016), so fingers crossed because they will have to survive Sydney winter before they are ripe.

By the way, none of the fruit books talk about the male and female fruits, so this is from our experience.

Winter 2011: I am not sure what variety these are as again my friend is germinating them from seeds that I collected. You can see in the pic that the sizes are very different. The big one was one of the first of all the seeds we collected to germinate while the other has come up months later. LESSON: be patient!!!


Spring 2011: My friend took one and I took the other. Hopefully between us we can get fruit from one!


Summer 2012: He has been home for a few months now but he is not happy. I think that the weather has just been too cold for him to really get going. The weather is warming up now though so I am hoping that he will get a chance to put on some new growth before winter. I might have to get a glasshouse or bring him into the bathroom to keep him alive over winter if he doesn't get a bit more established.


Planted: 2011

Height 30 Centimetres

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

Pollination: No

Pest Control: Ants love farming scale on them. The tiny leaf curling caterpillars love the new growth and you have to be SO carful not to snap it off when you're trying to get rid of it.

I have grown a few seedlings and kept one for myself, from a truly delicious fruit we came across in an abandoned orchard while learning to prune. Not sure if I'm game to plant it as it's supposed to grow quite tall and my garden is already full lol. Note: Have given this plant to a friend with acreage who swears she will share the fruit with me!

Not sure what variety this is?, was an Ebay purchase also didnt arrive in a good state and was really small - has since adpated and put on new leaves. When i got it, it was a  single skinny little stem with a bud at the top!!. Have since given that eBay shop a Bad review!. Anyway's hope to see this little guy grow and if it survives an Adelaide winter then i might purchase a bigger specimen from Daleys.
