Q.When Do I Wrap My Young Jack Fruits To Protect Them From Insects And Rotting

Zone 46050. Malaysia | vsenthi59 added on August 5, 2020 | Answered

I have a 4 year tree that fruits. But the fruits suffer from Rhizopus rotting. I have pruned to let more air and sunshine in. There are now a number of small fruits appearing. Do I need to cover them with a paper bag? If so when?

If there is already an infection, then wrapping them in with it will make the issue much worse! I would recommend treating with fungicides before you do anything else.

With proper treatment and maintenance after, it will be unnecessary to cover the fruit. Should you choose to put a paper bag around them, make sure that there are no signs of disease left.
