About This Food

Description

The jackfruit tree is native to Southeast Asia, yet it is related to the more widely found fig and mulberry trees. Jackfruits are the largest known fruits, growing up to 100 pounds in size. Within each pod bears a multitude of edible flowers and seeds making the jackfruit one of the most complex and dense fruits available.

With its distinctive smell and hybrid of textures and flavors, jackfruit is both versatile and unique. The seeds are also edible and often used for an alternative flour or roasted for a simple snack. Depending on its ripeness, jackfruits can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. When unripe, they can be used in place of meat. In fact, pulled “pork” jackfruit is a common dish.

Low in calories and carbohydrates, jackfruit is considered a healthy substitute for starchy vegetables in curries and stews. It is also a good source of vitamin C and potassium.
