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.
