If there are no updates or photos of the "RED" then what should be the conclusion "all who were arguing about red color are color blind"? :-)

How is the production of Excalibur Reds
How many fruits on some of these trees is it still as good as you once thought?

It is truly orange-red, I also just heard it from the horses mouth without even asking. King Richard, the owner of Excalibur. But who really cares, its close enough to red and if their described as red, which they are, and the taste is great, then the talk should finally end. At least I hope!

Some are red,  some are coral red and some a diluted coral red.  Understand, nobody ever said "blood red".  There are many different shades and tonea of red.


This jackfruit is a very deep coral red.  In many cases with fruit pictures, the picture does not tell the story or really do it justice.

Looks way more red than orange. I'd refer to that as a red jackfruit... the whole thing about it needing to be "ruby" red or some dark red is silly.

I was told Richard (Excalibur) thought their 'Cristela' was a red jackfruit as well but it came out a yellow color this year and they liked the taste better. Rob do you know about the 'Cristela' changing to yellow thing? I don't care what color it is if it tastes good and produces.

Surprised this is still being debated, can we just agree it's the most reddish jackfruit known?!?! 😂

I like the orange red color the best anyway, and do not think of it as more red than orange, hell no.  A ruby red would not impress me nor do I find it appetizing. Just put up another post and get a vote on what color everyone thinks it is. Have multiple choice and give 4 selections.
