Up to 100 Pounds of Fruit Each Season

Why Jackfruit Trees?

The Jackfruit is easy to spot with its unique green rind, a large, oblong shape, and softly spiked exterior. Because Jackfruits can weigh anywhere between ten to fifty pounds, they stand out against smaller tropical fruit. And once they’re spotted, they quickly sell out...people can’t get enough of this versatile, delicious fruit.

The Jackfruit Tree offers unique fruit that’s delicious. Once a Jackfruit is cut open, their rich, creamy flesh can be picked away from the seeds for a fresh, juicy snack. The pulp’s taste is reminiscent of a sweet banana mixed with the tang of mango and pineapples. It’s perfect for enhancing smoothies and ice cream.

And whether it’s cooked in a pan or on the grill like barbecue, Jackfruit gains the texture and flavor of pulled pork, serving as a delicious meat substitute. Jackfruits are popular to use in curry, tacos, sandwiches and more. Plus, Jackfruit Trees are tough and easy to grow - place them by a sizable, sun-soaked window and give them a little water to thrive. They'll produce a ton of healthy, savory fruit with just a bit of care.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Find a spot where you’ll have several hours of full sun exposure and where water will never pool. Remember, this is native to the tropics...so, think lots of heat and humidity to keep these trees happy.

If you're planting outside, make your hole twice the size of the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.

If you're container-planting, select a pot that's about twice the width of your tree's root ball and ensure it has drainage holes. Use an organic soil mix, place your tree and position it in front of a sunny window.

FGT TIP: Younger trees may be sensitive to cooler temperatures. We recommend that you protect your younger trees during times of frost with a frost blanket or breathable cloth until your tree is established or around three years old.   

Note: This product grows best in well-draining soil. When you receive your plant, you may notice small, white beads or rocks in the soil - this medium is added to increase drainage and keep your plant happy and healthy! 


2. Watering: Simply check your surrounding soil - if the soil is dry about 3 inches down, water until it's moist or until you see it draining from the pot for indoor Jackfruit Trees.

You may also mist indoor trees with a spray bottle since Jackfruits love humidity.

3. Fertilizing: Use an organic fertilizer, preferably one made for tropical fruits. Fertilize in the spring, and follow label instructions.
