JAKFRUIT

Botanical Name: Artocarpus heterophyllus
Description

(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.

Jakfruit - Seedling

A very handsome evergreen, reaching a height of 8 - 15 metres and bearing the worlds largest fruit. Fruits can weigh up to 20kg. Strong odour but is deliciously sweet. It can be eaten fresh or dried. Very quick growing and usually starts fruiting in 4th year. Cincturing can help earlier fruiting. There is an old Sri Lankan proverb that says, “with jak and coconut in your backyard you will never starve”. This is because every part of the jackfruit tree is useful. Unripe jackfruit can be cooked with chicken, fish and eggs, and ripe ones can be eaten as-is or processed into drinks, jam, jelly

Marang Fruit

Marang

The Marang resembles both the jackfruit and the breadfruit in appearance. This stately tree is of South East Asian origin.  Contrasting the marang's robust aroma, the fruit is succulent and mildly flavoured, regarded as superior to both jackfruit and chempedak. Less cold tolerant than the breadfruit it will  grow only in North QLD.  Not suitable for temperate climates.
