Hi, George.  Will you keep up with the new Zill introductions as they become available?

Rest assured that my OCD will assure that I grab any mango tree that does not currently reside in my collection as it becomes available.

George I'm a little overwhelmed and impressed by your list of jackfruit scions.  I don't know where to start.  If you could suggest top 5 on the list what would they be? 

I Primarily like crunchy jackfruit. Obviously low lates is I big plus.  I'm intrigued by the red varieties you are offering. Do they taste much different than the yellow? 

Anyone else that has a suggestion please chime in!!  Thanks!

Hey George,

I second Kona's request. I have a few seedlings and I would like to graft on 1-2 varieties on them. I am jakfruit newbie, I had some from our local international market and really enjoyed it! Had no idea what cultivar it was.

But I would like to know which ones you really like (a top 5 list)

And to make it a little more focused: If you had to start over and you had to choose the two varieties you can't live without, which ones are they?

Thanks!

I'm not George but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. ..

Personally,  I dont recommend grafting multiple varieties onto one tree.  With jackfruit,  since you have separate male znd female  "flowers" and its cruical to have male flowers at the same time as female,  grafting two different varieties on the same tree diminishes the chances for full and proper pollination as different varieties can tend to have different flowering times.  In addition,  if they did flower at the same time you could run the risk of cross pollination which for a backyard grower looking to get specific fruit, not a good thing.

With that geing said, I would go with Red Morning,  Excalibur Red,  Bangkok Lemon,  Crunchy Lemon and Mai 3.

For someone trying to create a new variety,  nothing.  For a newbie backyard grower, just trying to fruit a jackfruit in a marginal location, I would recommend sticking to the beat chance of pollination and creating a fruit if the named variety they purchased

Bsbullie.  I really appreciate the top 5 list. This is the direction I'm needing.  George what would your top 5 list be?  Then I can make my mind up and order these bad boys.

I have not tried a great many of the jackfruit I currently have planted out.  I purchased many of them on reputation.  From what I have tried, I like:


Borneo Red
Red Morning
Bangkok Lemon
J-31
Golden Pillow




I have never tried but am excited about:

Canteloupe
Excalibur Red
Honey Gold
Lemon Gold
Leung Bang
Mai 3
Orange Crush
Red Morning
RS-22
Tangerine


Everything on my list except Black Gold and Golden Nugget are supposedly the crunchy types because those are my preference.

But the fruit would still taste the same regardless of what type of jack pollinates the flower.  Or are you just thinking it would be pollinated more fully by its own male flowers?

Not necessarily. There are xenic and metaxenic effects in many fruiting species, meaning that the genes of the pollen parent can have an influence on fruit development. An example familiar to some here would be annonas: pollen from different annona species can have significant effects on the size and quality of the fruit. I can't find any solid evidence whether or not thus occurs in jackfruit, but given how variable jackfruit are known to be, testing for some sort of xenic effect in jackfruit seems worthwhile in my book. http://hortsci.ashspublications.org/content/42/7/1534.full
