What time of year is best for grafting Jackfruit in Florida? Is there a graft type that seems to work better than others?

This is good time, for me I start in March before it gets to wet.

If you have a controlled environment to keep your grafted trees in, you can probably graft all year. Cleft grafting seems to work okay with jackfruit.

Approach grafting will probably give you higher success rates.

If you do not have a controlled environment to keep your trees, it may be better to only graft during the warmer months.

I like the early spring as you can find scions with more stores of carbohydrates.You know that have not started rampant growth.Also I find more bacterial and fungal pathogens in the grafts when it gets wet.
