Jackfruit Tree

artocarpus heterophyllus

Description:

It did not have flowers but had lots of fruits. These fruits were yellowish green and hard with bumps all over. The leaf had a obovate shape and its dimensions were 13 cm long at its longest point and 7 cm wide at its widest. The leaf margins were entire and the venation was netted pinnate. The arrangement and texture of the leaves were alternate and smooth. An additional characteristic is the drip tips on the leaves. The texture of the bark was rough and the root system was buttress.

Habitat:

The tree was in a slightly shaded area with a bit of light coming through the top layer. The surroundings were generally moist and there was a space with less plants around. Near the top, the branches from the durian tree intertwined with other tree branches. The bottom of the tree was surrounded by leaf litter with no empty area.
