With an unusual spiky green covering, the Jackfruit has a sweet aromatic flesh. When it ripens the skin turns to a yellow color and is very fragrant. The pink or yellow flesh is best when eaten fresh with hints of mango and melon.
It is the largest tree fruit, averaging between 14 and 25 pounds per fruit. The exterior of the Jackfruit is covered with spiny, knobby bumps and is green in color. When you cut into it you can eat the pink or yellow flesh fresh. The many seeds residing in the Jackfruit are sensational roasted, similar to a chestnut flavor.
