Exotic Fruit with Many Uses - Including Vegetarian Cooking!
The Jackfruit Tree has a remarkable presence, with large, oval leaves and a regal trunk growing up to 70 feet tall. The real interest, though, is in its fruits, which can weigh up to 50 pounds when fully mature.
This tree can live more than 100 years, and it’s known for bearing the biggest fruits in the world. The large fruits have a unique green rind and an oblong shape covered in soft spikes.
The jackfruit itself has creamy flesh that's perfect for snacking - it tastes like a combination of bananas, mango, and pineapples. You can use the fruit to enhance ice cream and smoothies, or as a meat-free option for your recipes - grill it or cook it in a pan to enjoy a flavor similar to pulled pork. Jackfruit is great when added to sandwiches, tacos, curry, and more.
This unique tropical tree will provide a lifetime of fruit - and it's easy to grow! You can plant it in the ground or in a container, and it's self-fertile, so you'll get fruit with just one tree. Just place it in a spot with full sun, water when the soil is dry, and enjoy tons of tasty fruit.
You'll love growing the one-of-a-kind Jackfruit Tree at home - and when you get your Jackfruit Tree from BrighterBlooms.com, you get a happy, healthy and more mature tree that's been nurtured with care before it ships to you.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Find a spot where you’ll have several hours of full sun exposure and where water won't pool around the tree. Remember, this tree is native to the tropics, so it will be happiest with lots of heat and humidity.
If you're planting outside, dig a 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. Using an organic soil mix, place your tree in the pot and position it in front of a sunny window.
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 container-planted 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.
