TM Red Jack Fruit
« on: May 28, 2023, 07:35:32 AM »
Anyone have their TM Red Jack Fruit Tree fruited yet? Excalibur was selling this few years ago. Mine is growing but no fruit yet. Mine have few male flowers. I am waiting to see the quality and color of the fruit.

Is it supposed to be a soft or firm fruit?

Mine is holding its first small fruit this year.

I tried the few a few times a few years ago and it was probably the best tasting jackfruit Iíve ever had. Hopefully the fruit is consistently that good.

Yet to see a red jackfruit. They are deep reddish orange. Thanks to Mike T who commented on the non existence of the so called red jackfruits few years ago.

Timor red is not a great jackfruit IME.
And it does not have red arils IME.
The name is deceiving.

Itís cruchy.

Itís worse then a number of our random seedlings.
Itís no way close to amber in quality IME.

I am just saying this so that people donít think itís just their tree that isnít good or meet up to hype etc.

Real ďredĒ or ďvery dark orangeĒ jack is really good IMO!
Like 10/10 and Timor is like 4/10.

Not hatin just my opinion :D

At around 10cm girth the jackfruit tree will be able to hold a fruit to maturity and should be flowering,IME.
And thats anything from 2-3 years from seed sown for a seedling.
But depends on environment.
Usually young treeís donít give good flavour if many fruits are kept on.
We thin out the fruit early on for young treeís.

Peace!

Iíve been following this thread as I have a TMR tree that just fruited for the first time this year. Unfortunately, itís at a rental home and I donít go there often. I went today and saw that 1 of the 2 fruits were rotten, so I went ahead and picked the other, but it appears I picked the other one prematurely, so I donít think it will be a good example. Nonetheless, hereís some pics.

Thanks for the pictures. At least you catch one of them before its get spoiled. That fruit is mature. Just give few days to ripe. I can see little bit colors on the bulbs. Hopefully its red.

I was able to cut up my jack and Iím pretty sure I have the real thing. Even coming from a neglected tree and picked early, itís one of if not the best jackfruits Iíve had, especially the darker/ riper bulbs from the bottom. The latex was minimal but there was an average amount of rag.
