New Jackfruit listing at eBay
« on: October 01, 2012, 07:47:34 AM »
While regularly searching for jackfruit seeds from different types
Every once in a while a new seller is sprouting at eBay
If the new listing looks interesting, after contacting the seller
If it sound worthy and the seller provide good level of communication
I'll purchase few seeds.
At that stage there is no aim toward anything else but growing seedling
with different characteristics
If others are interested, here is an new listing that popped up recently
The seller is listing among others four different jackfruit types
Seeds I have bought from her sprouted readily
Regarding the seller itself, she is communicative and gave me the impression
she knows and enjoy jackfruits:

Amaqeq they jackfruit on the link look like good types and each is similar to very good named SE Asian cultivars.If the seeds actually do match the varieties pictured you are likely to be getting seeds of good quality jackfruit.It may be worth growing a variety of seedlings to see what does best in your conditions and what actually produces good fruit the best.You can use the best ones for bud wood once you are happy with them.

Among few pigs in a poke purchased few months ago
There are also few ones which make me more optimistic, even at the age of few months
seedlings from different batches show slightly different characteristics:
Growing tempo & lateral growth can be consistent within a group but not between batches
Indeed I aim to diversity in order to increase my chances of capturing an animal that will
like it here
Since those seeds are viable for relatively short amount of time, one cannot make a chart and compare which are the best to invest in, there is a window of opportunity
either you grab it or not, bit of gambling.
Regarding the seller in that link, I like the presentation, attitude, communication
and put my chances on those seeds
it is true, Mike what you say about the resemblance to good SE Asian cultivars
Although the seller is wise not to brag about named cultivars
He is aware of that resemblance
Instead he describes the the quality of what he has, in an honest relevant way.
Personally, I'm glad you have an cautious positive opinion about those listings
