Feroze,

I am not very knowledgeable about Jackfruit. However based on your description I suspect that your tree may be suffering from soil conditions that are too soggy wet (not well drained). It also could be that if you just have one tree it needs another variety for pollination to be good.

For more information on growing Jackfruit in Florida, see the following web site:

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
