Quote from: Triphal on July 27, , PM Artocarpus hirsutis: Not seen growing in beyond 16 degrees latitude in the Southern coastal and adjoining plateau of tropical India. It will not tolerate less than 60 degrees F. It was a non cultivated tree found wild in the woods and forests. Propagated by the wildlife mainly by bats, monkeys, squirrels and birds.
The unripe fruit is green and is skinned and boiled and preserved in brine for later usage in some kind of curries. In your zone 9a you have to build a huge green house with regulated high temperature and humidity throughout the year.. About 6 years ago while I was visiting India I carefully dug up a 9" seedling from under one of our big A h tree and transplanted about feet or so from the river bank salty backwater in our family estate.
It is about 7 to 8 feet tall in last March I saw it. I will be a centenarian then! Will find out soon during my next visit what happened. Good luck Signor. It is slow growing, indeed. Since the last update 1 month ago it has grown probably another 5cm and is around cm top grower now, against 45cm of a jackfruit in 1 month top grower.
