Jackfruit may be higher in some vitamins and minerals than apples, apricots, bananas, and avocados.

For example, it's rich in vitamin C and one of the few fruits that's high in B vitamins.

Jackfruit also contains folate, niacin, riboflavin, potassium, and magnesium.

Jackfruit is large, spiny, melon-shaped fruit originating from Southeast Asia. The pulp of the fruit can be used as a meat substitute since it has a similar texture to pork. If you live in USDA Zones 10 - 12, you too can grow a tree that produces jackfruit. By starting your seeds in a pot and transplanting them outdoors, after a few years you’ll have a tree bearing much fruit!

Count: 5 Zone: 10-12

Seeds are fresh. If you can't plant them now, we recommend refrigerating them until you are ready and no later than 3 months.

How to grow: Make Your Seed to Garden To start your seeds, soak them overnight in water and then plant them in the soil. It takes anywhere from three to eight weeks for jackfruit seeds to germinate. You can start the seedlings in the ground or indoors, but keep in mind that you should transplant a jackfruit seedling when there are no more than four leaves on it.

1. Choose the right containers

You can start seeds in almost any type of container, as long as it’s at least 2-3 ” deep and has some drainage holes. If you love to DIY by yourself, you might start growing seedlings in yogurt cups, milk cartons or even a paper cup.

2. The “potting soil”

Choose the potting soil that’s made for growing seedlings.

NOTE: Do not use soil from your garden or re-use potting soil from your houseplants. Start with a fresh, sterile mix that will ensure healthy, disease-free seedlings.

3. Planting

Some of the small ones can be sprinkled right on the soil surface. Larger seeds will need to be buried. After planting seeds, you have to moisten the newly planted seeds. To speed up germination, cover the pots with wet paper or a plastic dome. This helps keep the seeds moist before they germinate. When you see the first signs of green, you have to remove the cover.

4. Watering, feeding, repeating

As the seedlings grow up, you have to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Let the soil dry slightly between waterings. Remember to feed the seedlings regularly with liquid fertilizer.

5. Light

Seeds need a lot of light. Set the lights on a timer for 15 hours a day. If you’re growing in a window, choose a south-facing exposure. Rotate the pots regularly to keep plants from leaning into the light. If you’re growing under lights, adjust them so they’re just a few inches above the tops of the seedlings. Keep in mind that seedlings need darkness, too, so they can rest. As the seedlings grow taller, raise the lights.

6. Move to outdoors

It’s not a good idea to move your seedlings directly from the protected environment of your home into the garden. You’ve been coddling these seedlings for weeks, so they need a gradual transition to the great outdoors. About a week before you plan to set the seedlings into the garden, place them in a protected spot outdoors (partly shaded, out of the wind) for a few hours, bringing them in at night. Gradually, over the course of a week or 10 days, expose them to more and more sunshine and wind. A cold frame is a great place to harden off plants.

How Long Does it Take a Jackfruit to Bear from Seed? Some sites will say it takes years and years for jackfruit to bear from seed but this isn’t necessarily correct. The tree in our yard apparently started bearing at about 5 years of age. Your mileage may vary.

Jackfruit grows quickly and like water, fertile soil, and plenty of sun. Light frosts may kill young trees but older trees can take some cold.
