Jackfruit tree sap is rich in antioxidants, which can help boost your immune system and lower your risk of developing asthma and allergies.
But if you want to plant one, you need to find the right seeds.
That’s where saplings come in.
The saplings have a distinctive shape, so it’s easier to harvest the seeds, says John Ostrander, who teaches garden and food preservation at Purdue University.
The tree savers also are a little larger than a pea, which means you can pick the ones at least a foot tall.
They’re also easier to cut.
If you’re looking to make a tree-saver garden, you can’t go wrong with the papaya, a hybrid of the papayas of Latin America and the Japanese varieties.
They grow in temperate climates in tropical regions and can take up to 10 years to reach maturity.
Ostringer says you’ll have to choose between two varieties, one with the pomegranate-like shape and the other with a thicker, wider root system.
The papaya is also more resilient than the Japanese variety.
If that sounds a little daunting, the Japanese trees are also a great choice.
They can grow up to 50 feet in diameter, and they are resistant to both pests and diseases.
Otero and others recommend planting them in areas where they’re easy to reach and don’t require a lot of water.
You can plant them at least 12 feet apart.
Once you’ve planted the papays, you’ll want to start planting the seeds as soon as you can.
Ostrom recommends using a soil test kit to test your soil for nutrients, because that helps you know which seeds to choose.
But be sure to take the seeds outdoors.
The seeds will germinate in the sun and will spread in the soil if they don’t.
For the best quality, avoid using seeds that have the wrong colors or that don’t have the right shape.
You want to make sure that the seeds you pick are the ones that are the most suitable.
“If the seed you buy is yellow, then you’re not getting the best papaya,” Ostriger says.
You may also want to consider a variety that’s not too large, since it will require a little more water.
“It’s a good idea to go out and try some of the other trees,” he says.
