The Jackfruit is the largest tree fruit in the world as a single fruit typically weighs 30 to 40 pounds. The Jackfruit, which has an unusual, spiky green skin, has a distinctive flavor reminiscent of bananas, pineapple, and mango. Originally planted in Hawaii in 1888, Jackfruit has gained recent popularity as a meat substitute in vegan dishes such as meatless pulled pork, curry, and various other dishes. It can also be used in smoothies and mixing with ice cream.
Jackfruits are packing with nutrients as they are high in protein, potassium, vitamin B, vitamin E, fiber, and antioxidants. Interestingly, some researchers say Jackfruit could be a replacement for wheat, corn and other staple crops under threat from climate change.
