Ronaldo,

We have a Jack Fruit in the Arboretum that has been fruiting for several years now. The fruit usually gets about 14" to 16" long before someone harvests them. Someone other than me. This being a public garden, the fruit does not last long enough to ripen properly. I am told that the pointy dimples darken and soften and the fruit gives a little when ripe. I have been told they ripen in late summer and fall. Some people take them early and stew them like a vegetable or breadfruit.

BTW, you should consider topping the tree and training it to be lower. They get very large.
