When cleaning Jack fruit, have a prefered cooking oil (eg. vegetable oil) on hand to contantly keep your hands & knife coated with oil. This is to prevent the sticky substance from making a sticky mess in the kitchen :-)

Ardy, i brother lives in Cabramatta and his jakfruit tree is thriving. They slow down during winter but still alive but otherwise in good health and as soon as the weather warms up, they shot!

New since (sept 09) growing well in the pot. Not sure what variety.
Jack seeds thin square cut prepared with raw mango thin cut and lentil (yellow moong lentil) - hmm tastes different to any vegetarian common curries. Great flavour goes well with rice and pappdums
Latex collection from Jak tree ensures the good fruit formation.
