Mom and I just tackled a jackfruit, the largest tree borne fruit, native to South Asia. She got buried and I dug her out 🙂
A bit of work (ours took 20 minutes, 2 people) but the reward is sweet and fragrant, like a melon banana, and nutritious. (No, the canned version doesn’t compare on taste but looks good to spruce up a fruit salad!)
