John Hatcher: The lesson of the jackfruit tree

John Hatcher's picture

The humble, often ugly seed is one of the most amazing gifts in the universe.

One of the most amazing seeds is that of the jackfruit. Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, reaching 80 pounds in weight and up to 36 inches long and 20 inches in diameter. Now get this, there may be 100 to 500 seeds in a single jackfruit. I have seen 15-20 fruit hanging from a single tree. That says that a single tree can produce up to 10,000 seeds a year and each seed is capable of producing one tree. At this point it moves into higher math. But I think you get the point.
