📕 What Makes Jackfruit So Extraordinary?
Jackfruit, the largest and heaviest fruit in the world, is a true tropical marvel. Originating from the Western Ghats/West Coast of India, it thrives in various regions across Asia, the Caribbean, Africa, and South America. Picture a young jackfruit tree adorned with up to 200 enormous fruits, some weighing over 55 lbs/25 kgs each!
This succulent fruit, resembling breadfruit, comes in two major varieties: a soft, jelly-like type and a more commercially popular fleshy variant. Its pale yellow/beige flesh, reminiscent of a delightful amalgamation of banana, mango, and pineapple, exudes a delightful aroma that is nothing like the notorious durian. Trust us; it’s a completely different experience!
Jackfruit can be found whole or canned, with each form offering unique culinary possibilities. When ripe, the whole jackfruit can be relished as-is or incorporated into various dishes. On the other hand, canned jackfruit provides raw, young fruit, perfect for creating delightful jackfruit recipes.
