We have a few jack fruit trees and normally we see them appearing around November getting ready for harvesting around April/May
There is no sign of them showing up yet. And appearing late would mean they would be ready for harvesting much later which is our monsoon season. There is no demand for jack fruits that get wet in the rain.
Nature these days is acting pretty weird and we have no other alternative but to take what it gives.
Do you have jack fruits where you live?
Interesting fruit. I see a lot of them from Asian stores. I like the golden nuggets of fruit, and the canned/bottled, as well.
I wish I could export them too. They just languish here.
Do you preserve the fruit? I learned that nothing is wasted with jackfruit. Everything can be eaten. The seeds can be steamed or boiled and eaten as we eat a sweet potato. The white shells can be cooked as a vegetable. I don’t know about the skin, perhaps, as garden compost and mulch?
I have eaten jackfruits even before I was born. Probably my Mum ate them while she was pregnant. (lol) Having said that I know the use of jack fruit but when you get more than what you need after distributing to friends and neighbours and even selling some that is when I wished I could export them.
That would be excellent business venture. I wonder if you could sell fruit on ebay? Check out the regulations regarding postage freighting fruit. Interesting! I’m curious.
Thanks for your encouragement. There is a lot of work involved in getting that through.
I know. Tax, freight… and all that.
It is a bit unusual for us to have mango fruits n our tree in January but we have. Northeast monsoon had a late withdrawal and that could explain such changes in mango or jack tree.
Nature’s inconsistency is here to stay
It is also natural to have seasonal anomalies.
This is probably a tropical fruit and I would not thrive here …. I don’t know this fruit
These days fruits travel all over the world
No , no such fruit in our area
It is a delicious fruit but thought it grew in your country
I have never eaten jack fruit. I sure hope your harvest comes in.
No sign so far. Seems it will be a bad year
Durians do not grow in India. I have heard of that fruit and its smell (lol)
I don’t know jackfruits at all. They seem to look a bit like durians, but I don’t think they grow in India.
