JACKFRUIT (artocarpus heterophyllus) PB5 30cm
This handsome tree grows the world’s largest tree fruit – up to 40kg each! However, it is unlikely to reach this size here. Although the mature tree will tolerate a few degrees of frost, the young trees are delicate and will not flourish in colder areas. They require free-draining soil with plenty of moisture, but will not tolerate wet feet, or drought. They must be sheltered, and given frequent liquid feeds. They are self-fertile. These have been grown from seed from Australian fruit.

Maqui berry or Chilean wineberry has recently been named as a 'superfood'. It is very high in antioxidants and anthocyanins.

They prefer well drained soils and moderate to full sun. The plants are dioecious [male or female] and have been raised from seed, so you will need to plant at least 3 to have a good chance of getting both male and female.
