  • The Jackfruit  is a species of tree of the mulberry family  and its fruit. It is an evergreen tree growing to 10-15 m tall. The leaves are alternately arranged, elliptical, 5-25 cm long and 3-12 cm broad, often lobed on young trees but entire on mature trees.
  • The tree is well adapted to humid tropical to tropical climates. Frosts and droughts are impediments to growth and fruiting. If roots touch water, it affects the bearing of fruit and the tree can also die. In the Himalayan foothills, it can grow at an altitude of 500ft from the sea-level. Rich, deep soils of medium or open texture with good drainage are considered the most suitable.
  • A tree may yield as many as 150 large fruits annually attached to the trunk and its lateral branches. While some exotic varieties bear 250 to 500 fruits per year. The fruiting capacity of a tree depends upon the input supply, weather conditions, and protection from the insect pests and diseases which are many.
  • Jackfruit are wind and insect pollinated and generally require cross-pollination for satisfactory fruit production. Thus, planting more than one cultivar may be of benefit. Mature jackfruit trees may produce from 40 to over 250 pounds (18-114 kg) per tree, depending on the cultivar, weather, and cultural practices. Trees that average 150 pounds (68 kg) per tree or more are considered good producers.
  • Jackfruit is heavy and cumbersome to transport and should be harvested when mature only 35 days from ripening, so it is best to have a market close by if selling fresh fruit. For more remote areas, where the local market is small, processing the fruit into a more stable product such as dried or processed fruit may be necessary.
  • A recommended commercial fertilizer regime is 100150 g (3.55 oz) ammonium sulfate (20-0-0) per tree in the first year, increasing in pre-bearing years; then 0.51.0 kg (1.12.2 lb) of 14-14-14 fertilizer per tree increasing with age and size, with a full-grown tree 1520 years old receiving 23 kg (4.46.6 lb) complete fertilizer . The use of nutrient-rich organic mulches such as prunings from fast-growing nitrogen-fixing trees can reduce or eliminate the use of industrial fertilizer.
