Dried (Vacuum Freeze)
Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) is the largest tree borne fruit in the world. The fruit is huge, seldom less than about 25 cm in diameter. The sweet yellow sheaths around the seeds are about 3-5 mm thick and have a taste similar to pineapple but milder and less juicy.
Although the fruit is commonly eaten fresh, it is also sold canned with sugar syrup or frozen. Unripe (young) Jackfruit can also be eaten whole. Young Jackfruit has a mild flavor and distinctive texture. Sweet Jackfruit chips and Jackfruit smoothies or milkshakes are also popular. In many cultures, Jackfruit is used as an ingredient in cuisines. The seeds can also be eaten cooked or baked like beans; they taste similar to chestnuts.
