Any Jackfruit growers

I got a seedling that unfortunately popped up another in the same cup. Very fast growing and didn’t seem to mind 115 temps the other day. How fragile are these roots?

Can I separate them or should I just cull the small one? Thanks

you can try separating them by spraying a stream of water on the rootball so you could visibly untangle and minimize root damage. Jackfruit seed may vary in reaching age of maturity, so would be good to have more than one. Incidentally, if you decide not to separate, you can grown them side by side and braid them as they get taller. Just like their sisters: figs/mulberries, they also have bendy stems that readily braid to produce a two-in-one longitudinal graft having separate rootballs :slight_smile:
