Jackfruit Tree Propagation
The grafted tree and container are covered with a clear plastic bag and placed in a bright, but shaded location and thoroughly watered. The terminal bud on the scion will unfold its leaf and continue to grow. Rootstock sprouts from below the graft should be removed. The bag can be removed after the scion begins to grow in 2 to 4 weeks. The height of the graft on the rootstock is not critical. The same method can be used with leaf removal on the scion, and these scions can be stored in a plastic bag at 12C (54F) for up to a week. Other successful techniques include chip budding, cleft and forkert grafts. The key to all of these methods is the vigor of the rootstock and scion, and the preparation of the budwood.
