Jackfruit Tree Artocarpus heterophyllus Seedling

The jackfruit tree (Artocarpus heterophyllus) is a large evergreen tree that bears delicious edible fruit. It has a relatively fast growth rate, and new trees can start producing fruit within a few years. It’s best planted in the spring. The tree trunk grows fairly straight and has reddish-brown bark. From it extend large branches with glossy green leaves that are around 8 inches long.

The tree produces showy green flowers mostly in the fall, though it can bloom sporadically at other points in the year. Its yellow-green, kidney bean-shaped fruits are notoriously huge, maturing on the tree in the midsummer. They average between 10 and 40 pounds, though some fruits have been known to weigh 80 pounds or more. The inner yellow flesh is mildly sweet and has been compared to bananas and pineapples.

Your tree will be approximately 10 to 12 inches in height with well-developed roots.

These plants have been growing in 4” containers, but will be shipped without them. The roots will be protected with some soil and sealed in a plastic bag. They are ready to plant upon arrival.
