    I’ve tasted Jack fruit and it tastes like a mix of pineapple and mango. They are super delicious and so healthy. You can boil the seeds and they taste just like potatoes.

    Anyway what if I plant the seed and it works and it grow to a big tree and I can’t take care of indoor? I love eating this fruit. Due to your encouragement I am going to try planting 10 seeds.

    Hey John this is Joe again. I’ll take some pictures this weekend of my jackfruit tree it’s about 10 feet tall and is already getting fruit on it that are only about 6 to 9 inches long right now the fruit. Anyway I’ll go to your your website and then I’ll send you some pictures of my tree and the fruit. I’m in South San Diego area so it seems to be doing pretty good here

    I want to grow Jackfruit in my garden too but i can’t find a way to buy seeds so they can safely come to me. There are a couple "sellers" in Amazon and Aliexpress but hey have so negative comments and i am not risky guy. Can you tell me how i can get some seeds and try my best to grow them? Thanks for the video, it was great!

  19. CloudKingXII on April 14, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Fun fact : you can eat the seed if you boil it first. It tastes milky sweet.

    Best Jackfruit from Bangladesh

  26. Gabriel Prodanović on April 14, 2021 at 12:30 am

    How much time does it takes to grow jackfruit from seed to fruit

  27. RRRM on April 14, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Does anyone know of pruning this plant to keep it small. I’m a diabetic and I’ve read about and watch videos about making tea from the leaves live in North Carolina so I don’t think I’ll be able to get a big enough for fruit. But if I could harvest the leaves that would be great. I’ll probably have a small Greenhouse by next year. im a try and build anything kind of person.

  28. Sonia Rao on April 14, 2021 at 12:35 am

    Raw jackfruit is used to in cooking. It’s great made into a curry. It has a meat like quality. 🙂

  29. chefdagga RASTAFARI on April 14, 2021 at 12:38 am

    You are correct.. I always watch your video this is my first time commenting..great details

  30. Diloram Shirinova on April 14, 2021 at 12:38 am

    This tree will grow on full sun California East side on the high hill ? This tree likes a lot of watering ? Thank you.

  31. PRIS TV VLOG on April 14, 2021 at 12:38 am

    You boil the seeds in water too and eat tastes like chestnut

  32. Leverman on April 14, 2021 at 12:40 am

    looking for Jackfruit seeds for sale online, any tips ?

  33. sardonyxz on April 14, 2021 at 12:41 am

    Can this tree be grafted cuz 14 years is a long time to wait

  34. Youtube Central on April 14, 2021 at 12:45 am

    Good thing is that u don’t need to fertilize it or water it. It grows on it’s own

  35. Asas As on April 14, 2021 at 12:46 am

    We have them in Africa kenya 🇰🇪 we call them fenesi/mafenesi plural

  36. Nasima begum on April 14, 2021 at 12:47 am

    I’ve tasted a jackfruit and my seeds grew a root and I think I see a tree

  37. tiramisu dog rescue on April 14, 2021 at 12:47 am

    would it grow in SF bay area?

  38. bigburpboy on April 14, 2021 at 12:47 am

    The seeds are edible, kinda like roasted chestnut, but it gives you lotsa gas, methane, reuse gas👍

  39. Joe Serrano on April 14, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Long time no see John, yeah ditto on planting the seeds from fruit we buy at the supermarket! Coupla years ago I planted a red-fleshed grapefruit and the seed came up, grew big and strong and as of 1998 producing a lot of fruit BUT instead of having red interiors they have yellow interiors and they’re so SOUR! LOL…..but if Life gives you sour grapefruit, make grapefruitade! 🙂

  40. Matt Darbro on April 14, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Jackfruit is an amazing fruit – the taste is sweet, exotic, and oh-so-good in protein smoothies.

    One word of caution though. My Vietnamese friends say eat in moderation, because just like the Durian it’s a super food and can give some people IG issues if eaten in excess.

  41. Philip Zhou on April 14, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Did the jackfruit tree ever fruit?

  42. double ooh 7 on April 14, 2021 at 12:50 am

    how are the jackfruit coming along?

  43. mglez glez on April 14, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Which zone are you in?

  44. ashley Noffsinger on April 14, 2021 at 12:51 am

    No protein…

  45. Joe Theragman on April 14, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Hi John, this is Joel. I’m growing my own jackfruit tree now. Somebody gave me a ceiling number of years ago and I planted it and now it’s about 10 feet tall and I’ve got some small jackfruit on it now it’s looking pretty good

  46. Amos aju Onani on April 14, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Now I know, thanks.
    I will no longer cut mine down.
    It grows very well in Cross River State, Nigeria

    Bigger than your head

  48. Bobble Head on April 14, 2021 at 12:56 am

    I tried one for first time today (I work in the produce section of a Kroger) and it was absolutely delicious

  49. Joe Serrano on April 14, 2021 at 12:57 am

    Yeah John you’re right, I planted a Indian River red grapefruit seed, the seed sprouted grew, transplanted outside and it does produce lots of grapefruit, but…..not red grapefruit, yellow grapefruit and very SOUR! LOL…great for making grapefruitade. As for the Jackfruit, I wonder almost five years later how your seedling is, living up here on the central plateau, I saw them here in 2018 and finally in this year I bought me a quarter size piece and recently a half piece, the fruit is so good and like you, I planted some seeds and they’re coming along fine, so the climate here is suptropical shouldn’t be no problem planting outside.
