Vietnam Dwarf Jackfruit?
« on: July 03, 2023, 11:03:39 AM »
I've planned on purchasing a cochin jackfruit to occupy a smallish space for a jackfruit tree. I've been looking around for sources and came across another variety that I've never heard of for sale by everglades farm in homestead. It's called vietnam dwarf and apparently sets two crops per year: https://everglades.farm/products/vietnam-jackfruit-tree-grafted-2-3-feet-tall-for-sale-from-florida?_pos=2&_sid=83a6a166a&_ss=r&variant=42626321285365

Any information on this jackfruit?

Most likely a Thai dwarf renamed.

Which is an Indonesian mini renamed.

Nangka-mini was the original sobriquet used by the Indonesian seller. A great novelty but unfortunately seems to have no adaptability outside tropics.

Just as a side note, the first ever book on the genus Artocarpus is scheduled for publishing in early 2024, and while the original intent was to be a scientific monograph, it will include a lot of info useful for laymen, such as common vernacular used for species. This should make ID much easier, along with the abundant photographs. There should also be info on cultivars, for jakfruit at least.

So if you want to know the difference between a cheena and a chempejak... keep your eyes (and rags) peeled.

Eugenia luschnathiana = CURUIRI.    Talisia esculenta = PITOMBA
I do not recommend people deal with Fruit Lovers, Prisca Mariya or Fernando Malpartida

Isn't a cheena just another of many jack x chempas but a very early one? I had a few and looked at an old tree and a few kinds of chempajacks recently. It wasn't as good as some chempajack or jackadak varieties as some people like to call them.
I grafted various jacks, chempas and a chempajacks onto young seedlings a few weeks old. Of maybe 80 or 90 amber jacks only about 5 or 6 took and mostly on rootstock of its own type. By contrast nanka mini took really well. Chempas were also only around 10% successful for me and and lemon chempajack had a lower success rate again. J33 jacks went pretty well. I was doing the smallest rootstocks possible and when first shooting.
