I have a jackfruit tree in my backyard which is about 3 years old and ten feet tall. It started to bear fruits about 3 to 4 months ago but they either dry up or drop off. The latest one to fall off was about 5 inches long. Please advise. Thank you.

There are a few things that could be causing this. First, jackfruit trees do have a tendency to drop their fruit the first year they produce, so this may be just normal. Second, if the soil is lacking potassium, they may drop their fruit. Have the soil tested for potassium deficiencies. Third is that it was not well pollinated or pollinated at all. Generally, these trees need two trees to pollinate well and they also pollinate better if they are hand pollinated.
