BEST jackfruit ever!!! (Maybe a cross)
« on: January 31, 2017, 04:48:54 AM »
Alright fellow jackfruit loving friends.  Since living in hawaii I have probably eaten At least 50 jackfruits. And this one takes 1st place by a huge margin. Unbelievably delicious

Got this fruit from a friend growing the tree on his farm in Kona.  He claims it's by far his best tree and he calls it a "jackfruit" but I'm pretty convinced it's a "cheena".  (Jackfruit/chempedak cross)  the way the pods SO EASILY remove from the central core.  And also the skin can easily be torn back (similar to how a chempedak does)   But the SIZE... (25 pounds this one) and also the taste and texture of the fruit are amazing.  Soooo sweet and delicious and the yield was incredible.   Texture was not all gummy like a chempedak... definitely not crunchy like jackfruit tho.  Happy medium I would say

Anyways I think it's pretty obvious to say how stoked I am on this one.  I will be planting about 10 seeds personally and selling the rest. 

Let's do 10 seeds for $15.  Plus $8 shipping within USA.   Get em while you can. This one is worth growing







With 3 acres of prime real estate for growing tropicals... why not create my own garden of eden?? Work in progress

My experience with Kona fruit farm as a buyer was excellent. I highly recommend him.

I wish i had more space  :'( because this fruit remind me of Cemepedak But I might pull the trigger and buy these seeds too  8).

the description for how its compares to cempedak are also true for soft fleshed varieties, the thing that gives it away when its a cross is either the smell , taste or seed are cempedak like, more of a funk to the smell, taste, or the seed are slightly bigger and rounder than jack seed

thanks guys i try to sell good stuff... and yeah i'm not sure its a cross  and i'm not claiming with any certainty that it is...  if it is a regular jackfruit then its by far the best jackfruit I've ever had.  and by far the easiest to work with. 

I still have LOTS OF SEEDS LEFT.

Cheena are pretty good and look like that inside. Fruit are often not so elongate. The seedlings might vary a bit from the parent.

Since its from seed wouldn't it be a gamble  for good bad or ugly since seeds are not true to type wouldn't you need to graft it to get a clone of this amazing cross

Never doubt the seedlings. The genetic potential is limitless.
Biodiversity is key.

I sent payment back on 2/11/17. I haven't received any seeds or any correspondence yet? I sent several messages. But he does not reply.
