How to Cut a Jakfruit

(Jackfruit) This striking tree bears some of the worlds largest fruit. The golden-yellow flesh has a strong odour but is deliciously sweet, described by some as having a banana bubblegum taste.
It is delicious eaten fresh or dried in the sun like dates. The seeds are roasted and the green fruit eaten as a vegetable in curries. Freezing the arils is a great way to preserve the abundant fruit. Cross pollination beneficial for bigger fruit and heavy crops.
