    Live in Florida, planted a 6 ft Jackfruit tree that is not handling our hot summer so well. Have seen them grow in full sun here once established. Had to cover him with shade cloth until fall. Love your videos. Keep up the good work!

    Just put up shade for my little Fig tree after it getting a bit burnt from that last round of 100's here in Cornville. Also doing our Persimmon, and possibly the Jujube, since they all suffered a bit from that intense heat and are newly planted. Driving those stakes in with this hard soil is hard work man!!

    Thanks for the how-to video Jake!

    What I like to do is use 7' steel t-bar which gives me a nice solid base and then if I need more height I tie on some PVC which comes in 10 ' lengths and can be cut to the length you need.

    You have been busy shading your edibles,  good onya!  I have a few delicate trees and we are heading into winter so I have to protect my young mango trees, avocados and papaya.

    Jake, just to let you know, I have clicked "subscribe" at least 10 different times on as many of your videos and the next day you are no longer in my subscriptions. Doesn't happen with any other channels, just yours. Anyway, great videos!

    I just planted a 6 foot tall Fig tree. Should it be shaded since I planted it "late" in the season, despite it's size?

    South Texas, I have lots of different trees, apples, plums, pears, avocados, peach and all different citrus. Just started shading after your video, didn't know this and nobody here at any of the local nurseries talk about shading trees.

    I would recommend taking some sandpaper to the top of those stakes so as the wind buffets the cloth the sharp edges don't tear it.

    Jake, I have been looking for something like this for my squash plants that seem to wilt back during the high heat times of the day. What % of shade cloth should be used? 40%, 50% or something higher for fig trees? Thanks Jake!
