There are still three trees growing. I will probably thin out one soon. Then another in a couple months. Thanks for looking!

Cool.. I spent alot of time in the Philippines when I was in the military. They had jackfruit growing everywhere.. in front of public buildings etc.. seemed random people would just adopt a tree when it was fruiting, and care for the tree, bag the fruit etc.. It always amazed me that nobody ever seemed to steal the fruit from the one who cared for it.. dont try that here in the US! Can you imagine growing a long maturing fruit like bananas or jackfruit on a public street or in front of city hall.. No doubt it would be gone at the first sign of ripe!

Fall update on the jackfruit..... need to trim the oak to allow for more sun. Growing slowly. It does get pretty much full sun in summer, but the oak tree perfectly blocks the rays from the slanting sun in winter. I thinned out the last one left that I planned to remove. Only one is growing now...

that should have read: in no time oops
i am not sure what variety i have either
not sure of the age of mine.. think i bought it around 8 yrs ago?
the fruits would start to grow but eventually fail to thrive and then shrivel and rot
it has a hard time with the cold as you can see by the dead top but seems happy enough at the moment

Our country has changed dramatically over the past 50 years. Respecting the fact that this is a banana forum, I will not elaborate. However, in the Midwest, that type of life still exists. People respect each other and welcome strangers. While traveling to speak in small towns, I have had people invite me to their homes for Sunday dinner and take up the cash for the jukebox and give it to me to play the music at the bar. These people didn't know me, but they TRUSTED me; a stranger.

These places DO still exist, but they are getting fewer and farther between. It's a shame too, because only a generation ago, this WAS America. Great memories though. Special thanks to all of the ice holes who drive off without paying for your gas. Now, we all have to try and guess how much we need and pay for it first. In the small towns on the way to my cabin, you still pull in, pump your gas and then pay. One day, we will return, but not as long as our borders are wide open. End of post, before I say too much.

I suspect you and I share some similar views, but yes, best to leave it to bananas, because we all know how political discussions turn out! lol

I know, which is why I managed to hit the internal "stop" button just in time, LOL.

PM on the way. NOT via Dominion, however...
