Male or female ? #ThursdayTreeLove

Waiting for the Little Ones to come out of class gives me time to notice the trees in the leafy lane the school is situated in.

The other day I noticed an interesting tree trunk with peeling bark.

I asked one of the fathers if he knew what the name of the tree was. I was surprised when he told me that it was a Jackfruit tree.

        Another jackfruit tree playing catch up with the buildings around it.

“How come I’ve never seen any fruit?” I asked.

“Because it is a male tree.”

Did you know that jackfruit trees can be male?

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!


  1. I am not sure I’ve ever seen a jackfruit tree but I have had the fruit as part of vegan “meat” preparations. Those preparations are delicious. We have the beautiful ginkgo tree, which has both male and female trees. Sometimes, when under stress, the male trees can change into female trees.
