Jackfruit is the world’s largest tree fruit, averaging between 15-30 pounds each. The national fruit of Bangladesh and Indonesia, the jackfruit’s fragrant green exterior is covered in knobby bumps. Inside, the flesh has been compared to pineapple, melon, or mango. The jackfruit is often used in some cultures in the full-grown but unripe stage. Cut into large chunks and boil in lightly salted water until tender. Please note, the gummy latex secreted by the fruit accumulates on the knife and the hands unless they are first rubbed with salad oil. Jackfruit seeds are delicious when roasted and are regarded as an aphrodisiac by some cultures. Select jackfruit with a strong fragrance and refrigerate.
