Artocarpus?
« on: September 25, 2020, 08:42:56 AM »
Have this growing from a stump under a longan tree. Looks different but similar to my jackfruit. Anyone know what it is?

It has you stumped? It isn't very heterophyllous and the leaves are very shiny. Looks like Moraceae  and even Artocarpus. Not a super typical jack but still could be a jackfruit.

I realize I've been cutting down fruit trees for the past 5 yrs that were planted here prior. Last six months I started collecting fruit trees learning a ton. Regretting what I've already removed!

Was hoping it was something different. Maybe I can graft it onto jack?
