Here it is - one of the all time top varieties of Jackfruit - The Golden Nugget!
The deep orange flesh is soft to medium firm depending on fruit ripeness. The flavour is excellent, the flesh has NO FIBER, extremely sweet, aromatic, and juicy. The Golden Nugget is simply a must have for every Plant Enthusiasts' collection.
The Golden Nugget is a fast growing tree in Jackfruit family, albeit it is considered a dwarfing variety and can be kept in a container for a very long time. The tree has a distinctive dark green, rounded leaf. It forms a dense, spreading canopy, which is easily maintained at a height and spread of 2 to 2.5m. The fruit are small, green and rounded, with sharp, fleshy spines on the skin. The spines flatten to a smooth, golden-yellow upon maturity. The fruit weigh up to 6kg each with an excellent edible flesh percentage of 41%. The tree can bear between 60-90kg of fruit per year!
These plants are approx 60cm tall at present.
Disclaimer: Although some seed grown plants are not true to type, they will still provide you with a delicious tasting fruit in years to come.
Prefer full sun, however they are happy growing in a large container and growing indoors or a semi shaded area.
Plenty of water around summer, less during winter - limit to once a week.
Well-draining, soil may be sandy, sandy loam. Just avoid clayish type soil, as they don’t like wet feet.
They like nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium applied in a ratio of 8:4:2:1 to 1 ounce (30 g.) per tree at six months of age and doubling every six months up to two years of age.
Keep away from strong wind when young. Can tolerate more when established.
No frost, best to put a cover on top during winter. Will be happy growing under a greenhouse.
