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.

The Darker Ripe bulbs were dark red or yellow?

I would call it more reddish-orange. Hereís whatís left.The darker sections of the bulbs are a pretty close representation.

Mine is holding its first fruits. Two nice size fruits almost ready to pick.

Photo was taken about a month ago:


How long did it take to bear fruit? Did you buy the tree from nursery?

Still impatiently waiting. The fruits are getting large and one seems to almost be ready. This trea was a 7 gallon from Excalibur planted in 2019.

Both fruit split. One wasnít close enough to being ripe and the second started to rot from all the rain as I let it tree ripen after splitting. Both weighed in around 35lbs. Sadly, not as red as advertised.

It may get more red at mid summer than late season that is my experience with colored Jaks.Late season Jaks can also not want to ripen on the tree and loose their color and sugar ,seeds sprout in the Jak and split.So you may want to pick hard and ripen off the tree when filled out. It is a bit of a art for each cultivar of Jak for their visual cues.

Thanks for the pics ...I think its not really red its more deep yellow color. Anyway fruits looks good quality. I may have to get the Dang Surya for the real red color.

I have a seedling of a J31 that produces dark pumpkin orange fruit that ripen around October. Iíve seen three other peopleís TMR fruit and they looked identical to mine with the yellow pink two toned color. Included photos of my pumpkin orange seedling.

Iíve never seen the arils of orange crush. Maybe someone can post a photo? My orange seedling came from a j-31 seedling tree, and the grower had an orange crush next to it. Not sure if it cross pollinated with the orange crush. Iím still looking for a nice red variety.
