Jackfruit tree belongs to the mulberry family, mostly cultivated in tropical regions and sub tropical regions of the world....
especially in Bangladesh and India and cultivated in other parts of the world including The Caribbean ,South Asian countries, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and grown in Brazil and African Countries. Jackfruits are the largest fruits among all the fruits, which weighs about 80 to 90 pounds. and measured about 50 cm and 90 cm in size.
Ripe Jackfruits are delicious and sweet in taste and looks like yellow pods and can be eaten raw, while unripe jackfruits are green in color and are used to prepare delicious recipes, dishes and salads.
Enormous and prickly on the outside, jackfruit looks somewhat like durian (though jackfruit is usually even larger). Once a jackfruit is cracked open, what you will find inside are pods or "bulbs". Often referred to as the seeds, these bulbs are actually a kind of fleshy covering for the true seeds or pits, which are round and dark like chesnuts. The fleshy part (the "bulb") can be eaten as is, or cut up and cooked. When unripe (green), it is remarkably similar in texture to chicken, making jackfruit an excellent vegetarian substitute for meat. In fact, canned jackfruit (in brine) is sometimes referred to as "vegetable meat".

Grow Tropical Fruits at Home
about jackfruit trees - This well behaved stately tree reaching skyward can achieve heights of 30 to 70 feet at maturity. The canopy is comprised of rich green, glossy, leather like leaves that can grow to 9 inches in length. Flowering occurs on short twigs that emerge from the trunk and large branches. The largest of all tree-borne fruits, jackfruit may grow up to 3 feet long and as large as 20 inches wide with scaled weights anywhere from 10 to 110 pounds! Jackfruit rind is yellow when ripe and is covered in numerous cone-like points. Upon ripening, unopened jackfruit emits a strong odor, while the inner pulp smells of banana and pineapples.
location - Jackfruit Trees can be grown in all 50 states simply by bringing indoors before temps drop below 40 degrees and providing lots of light. Most tropical fruit trees like Jackfruit Trees are very fast growing and easier to maintain than domestic fruit trees. Below are a few brief tips for successful growth both indoors and out.

planting in ground - Jackfruit Trees are fast growing and require space to stretch out, so plant your rows on 18 foot centers or for individual trees choose a location at least 10 feet from other trees or shrubs.
planting in pot - Jackfruit Trees grow very well in containers as long as you provide an adequate size pot for root development. Select a pot 18-24 plus inches in diameter and 20 plus inches in height, with adequate drain holes. Glazed pots require far less watering than raw terracotta pots due to their porous nature.
soil - A well draining soil is of primary importance as Jackfruit Trees roots do not like to be wet and will rot if allowed to sit in water for extended periods. A mixture of soil, sand and perlite is highly recommended for proper drainage.
indoor light - A bright and sunny solarium or window location with a more southern exposure is best for growth and fruit production. Many customers have reported harvesting fruit from trees that live in home and patio environments.
outdoor light - Jackfruit Trees prefer bright light and direct sun. If possible 12 hours of bright sun light is best for growth and fruit production though we have gotten remarkable results growing these trees in 30% shade year round.
water - When watering Jackfruit Trees make sure to lightly soak the soil and then do not water again until the top 2 inches are dry. Depending on light conditions, location and foliage watering may be required weekly or daily. Be sure to not over water, mucky soil will almost always cause decay and ultimately kill the tree.
fertilizer - It is recommended that you fertilize at the same time as you water using a time released fertilizer 8-3-9 or similar to help your Jackfruit Trees grow and produce a substantial crop. These trees are moderate feeders and may require multiple feeding during the growing season. It is important to follow the fertilizers labeled instructions as to not burn or kill the tree
