All-season Jackfruit plant Propagation Method
Jackfruit can be produced either by seeds or by asexual propagation. In seed propagation, since it is produced by pollination, there may be a chance of mixing up different varieties of jackfruit. That is the natural way of producing seeds. If we are looking for a specific variety of jackfruit, we may proceed with asexual methods. In asexual methods, budding is one of the easiest and best methods to propagate plants.
All-season jackfruit will be produced in the asexual method. So it will make sure that we are producing the same variant.
