Jackfruit - Plant in Fall or Wait

(1/1)

kapps:
I wish I had made this decision earlier in the year but I have a 1gal Mai 1 on the way from Lara Farms. Iíve heard jackfruit have sensitive roots so Iím weighing my options of planting it now in early October or up-potting now and leaving it in a pot until spring. Assuming I can protect it from the night or two of frost this winter, would it be better to get into the ground now?  Are there any other concerns with planting out a baby jackfruit like this?

fruit nerd:
I don't get frost here but in my experience, Jackfruit have been very easy to grow. Aside from the frost concern, I'd say earlier is better for root development. We planted a jackfruit seedling straight into the ground after sprouting in water a little over a year ago. It's now 7-8 foot high.

Thanks, I was leaning towards getting it into the ground asap so thatís what Iíll do.

I planted mine late fall/early winter and it's done fine. I did cover it when we had the bad cold snap last year.
