Jackfruit article grumblings...
I think I'm becoming the Curmudgeonly Fruit Lord, but this bugged me:
Philippines: Unconventional breeding yields sweeter jackfruit (Freshplaza)
The article talks about "unconventional breeding", as though it was some novel, exciting approach. Yet when you read further, it turns out that "unconventional breeding" consists of driving around and looking for good-looking plants. That's neither novel nor breeding. Selection is a part of breeding, but it's not all there is to it.
And then we're supposed to be impressed that it was "developed" in just three fruiting years. Except of course they didn't actually develop anything...just picked a winner from the existing options.
