Sarah's Front Yard Jackfruit Tree in South Florida

Sarah's Front Yard Jackfruit Tree in South Florida

For daily gardening inspiration, visit http://www.thesurvivalgardener.com.

Growing jackfruit trees in South Florida is not only possible, it can be profitable. I went and visited my friends Chuck and Sarah a couple of weeks ago and filmed their amazing front yard jackfruit tree. In their location near Fort Lauderdale, the jackfruit tree is quite close to the upper end of its range. Just a little further north and growing jakfruit would be basically impossible without protection or a very good microclimate. A big thanks to Sarah for sharing her jackfruit growing experience.

    I have seen pruning videos on this tree….from what I was told…the more you prune, the more they fruit, but, the shade aspect of the tree is nice too….I bet it keeps the house cooler in the summer..🤙

    Will growing in Georgia work?

  5. My Will on April 5, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Wow

  6. Emeralds on April 5, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    $8-9 a kilo. One average fruit would weigh around 7 kilos

  7. Eswar Lakshminarayanan on April 5, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    You can find if the fruits are ripened by just smelling it

    Roasted seeds are very good

  12. Marx Gedeon on April 5, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    That’s a beautiful tree

  13. FIUPanther305 on April 5, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Can you keep these pruned to a more manageable size?

  14. cheryl vanderklay on April 5, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Wow, thank you.

  15. Sunshine on April 5, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    We just cut off 95% Lee Chi fruits from the plant. They are tasted sweet. We also have three small Jack Fruit plants. I am worry about how to grow Jack Fruits around my back yard. I believe that each plant takes 10 feet in diameter, right?

  16. Sunshine on April 5, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    How big is the Jack Fruit tree in width?

  17. A Supremum on April 5, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    It seems that she doesn’t really eat the fruit

  18. Acoustic Jeremy on April 5, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    I guess Florida is as humid as southeast Asia…….Jack fruit is a southeast asian native fruit……..

    I one time purchased a jack fruit at my grocery store. I live in an area that can’t sustain a jack fruit tree because of the cold winters and not being tropical. The fruit I purchased was imported and about 12 pounds and costed 20 to 25 dollars. I had so much jack fruit from that 12 pound fruit that I had to refrigerate and put some in the freezer. I roasted most of the seeds in the oven and planted a couple in a pot to be a house plant. The seeds are great roasted in the oven and the fruit overall was delicious and I recommend trying it. It seemed like I got more fruit than actual rind on the jack fruit.

  20. Janaki Rama on April 5, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Do you sell them??

  21. Akwin Thomas on April 5, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    It is known as Chakka in Kerala, home of jackfruit

  22. Foodie on April 5, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Looks to be cempadek not jackfruit. I prefer cempadek since more sweet and fragrant.

    Cempadek are more expensive. You have a gold mine.

  23. Eswar Lakshminarayanan on April 5, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    It’s an amazing fruit. Sweet and delicious

  24. Grace Jocame on April 5, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    We can buy some want it ripe or green one is fine can make jackfruit jam too

  25. rafal jankowski on April 5, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    i’m jealous.trying to grow it in Arizona,not such great results

  26. Jeffrey Weston on April 5, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Can I buy some, or seeds or seedlings??

  27. Farina O'Donovan on April 5, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Don’t till they are ripe. Pick them when the are just big. Few days later at home taste crunchy. Love to see it growing so big.

  33. Daria Mancini on April 5, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Beautiful tree. Must be nice to be able to grow tropicals like this!

  34. priyadarsini jacob on April 5, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    I know south Florida should grow more of these tropical trees and export it to other states.

  35. Tameri El on April 5, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Are people welcome to buy a few from her?

  36. keith keller on April 5, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Thats an amazing tree!

  37. soro_i on April 5, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Quick….. Put up a 10′ fence in front of your yard…. And keep Asians away from that tree…. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  38. Matthew Szostek on April 5, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    I am so jealous. If I can get my hands on some seeds im going to try and hide some from frost in a forest

  39. Nasus Sdleihs on April 5, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Wish I could grow Jackfruit trees in central west texas. The "unripe" fruit is an amazing tasting meat substitute. I buy the canned jackfruit to make "pulled pork BBQ", "sweet & sour chicken", "cashew chicken". It’s an amazing meat substitute that is just jam packed with nutrients. I hope this lady knows what a gold mine she has growing in her yard!

  40. Thomas Reto on April 5, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Well, Josette and I planted one of these in our yard in Puna. Fingers crossed, hoping we have a good tasting fruit in a few years or so. I am going to keep ours pruned though. If it doesn’t work, I we can always cut it down and compost it.

  41. Treesa Michael on April 5, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Jackfruit was primarily grown for wood and food. In India it used to be available in the months of March to June. Can be cooked raw. Seeds are high in protein too.

  42. dev bachu on April 5, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    I just ate a few seeds of jack fruit

  43. Abraham Cooke on April 5, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    its amazing how a tiny seed can produce enough fruit to feed 10 villages

  44. Janaki Rama on April 5, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    If they sell please let me know, I will buy

  45. treeman Micool Jacksonn on April 5, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    She made a great decision!

  46. S on April 5, 2022 at 7:23 pm

  48. Adauto Novais De Matos on April 5, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    Here in Brazil there are many jackfruit trees! Especially in many public parks and school gardens! Sometimes they fall to the ground when its are so ripe! Check out the ones I filmed with my cell phone:
