Growing a Jackfruit Tree in a Container vs. On the Ground
You don’t have to have sprawling acres of land in order to grow a jackfruit tree. Most of our trees ship in a plastic container that you can use to start growing your jackfruit tree. Depending on your variety of tree, the jackfruit can spawn in this container for 6-12 months on average before being planted on the ground, or transplanted to a larger container. Dwarf species fair particularly well in containers at first, because of their smaller nature. However, if you want to grow your jackfruit larger and quicker, planting the tree in the ground from the start is the best bet.

How Long Does it Take for Grafted Jackfruit to Bear Fruit?

The time it takes for a grafted jackfruit tree to bear fruit depends on several factors, including the age of the tree, the growing conditions, and the variety of the tree. On average, it takes a young jackfruit tree 3 to 5 years to begin producing fruit. However, some trees may take longer or shorter to bear fruit depending on their growing conditions and the amount of care and attention they receive.
