Jackfruit has been a challenge for me.  It is listed for Zone 9B or warmer.  I'm in 9B, and get only one day average per year where the temperature drops below 32.  When it does it only goes one or two degrees cooler for an hour or two.  Last year was the only year of the last 6 years without going below 32.  Young Jackfruit can't take it, and I've lost dozens.  Bigger trees (3 or 4 Years +) can take it, but drop all of their leaves.  Grafted trees fare little better.  The tops die off, leaving the root stock to start new growth.  Luckily the rootstock generally produces great fruit too. 

If you live in Zone 9A or lower, I wouldn't even try it. 
Want - Buzzone Nero, Ben's Golden Riverside, CLBC, Cravens Craving, Exquisito, Black Zadar, Violet Sepor, CdDR,  CdDBN, White Maderia, Zaffiro, Campaniere, Raspberry Verte, Malta Black, any LSU- Red, Strawberry, Tiger, Gold, Yellow, etc.
