Jackfruits

Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, one fruit can weigh between 10 and 100 pounds with yellow, banana-flavored flesh and contain 100 to 500 seeds in a single fruit. The jackfruit is rich in protein, potassium, calcium, and iron.

Do not let your jackfruit go bad, when fully ripe, the unopened jackfruit emits a strong disagreeable odor, resembling that of decayed onions, while the pulp of the opened fruit smells of pineapple and banana.

Jackfruits turn brown and deteriorate quickly after ripening. No one knows the jackfruit place of origin but in Africa, it is often planted in Central African Republic, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania Zanzibar.
