Wanted Bread fruit seeds

Grantsboro, NC(Zone 8b)

I want to at least try to grow the plant . I have been obscessed with the thought of growing them for years

Whitesburg, TN(Zone 6b)

These folks sell them. I live in TN and I grew them this year. They died :( They need a lot of shade, and constant dampness. Good luck.

Thanks I will order them at least once.

They come moist in a ziplock. You would think there was something wrong. But, these seeds will not germinate if they ever dry out. Plant immediately.

Interesting. Didn't think they grew from seed. Here in the Bahamas, we dig down, chop the root, and a new tree sprouts up. Thought that was the only way! How did it go? And we grow them in the sun.

I grew some from seed. I grew three. One of them was variegated...green leaves with white stripes. When they are established, they can go in full sun. When they are young new shoots, they wilt quickly in full sun. Start in the shade for a few months, then move to full sun gradually.
