Growing nangka (Artocarpus heterophyllus

I predict Nangka Royale is going to be the next big thing in the world of fruits after Durian Musang King. 

The picture shows the tree in my garden. I have begun to multiply the plant by bud-grafting.

The tree first fruited at 3 years old and it has become famous with my neighbours, relatives, workers (Indonesian and Vietnamese) as the best nangka they have ever tasted.It is sweet, succulent and small-seeded. The flesh can be stored frozen in the ice compartment of a refrigerator for months without any loss of quality. This tree has been kept short by periodic pruning at the top.
