Jackfruit trees, scientifically known as Artocarpus heterophyllus, are large, evergreen trees native to the rainforests of Southwest India. Belonging to the mulberry family, Moraceae, these trees are renowned for producing the world's largest tree-borne fruit, the jackfruit.


Jackfruit trees have a distinctive appearance, with dense foliage and glossy, dark green leaves that can grow up to 9 inches long. The tree can reach impressive heights of up to 80 feet under favorable conditions.


The jackfruit itself is a marvel, both in size and taste. It can weigh up to 80 pounds and is characterized by its spiky, green exterior. Inside, it houses numerous sweet and fleshy yellow bulbs, which are often consumed fresh or used in a variety of culinary dishes.


We've recently potted up all our jackfruit tree saplings individually, and they are now ready for sale as young plants.


Grow these plants in pots in a soil, bark and perlite mix to keep the media open and airy. Give plants good light and consistent watering. Make sure that they never dry out. Plants should remain manageable in pots but be prepared to prune as necessary.
