What is Jackfruit?
Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, reaching up to 60 cm long and weighing up to 18 kg. Inside of the fruit, just beneath the rind are the bright yellow ‘bulbs’ which make up the edible portion of the fruit.
A pithy core runs down the length of the fruit and connects the bulbs to the rind. Young Jackfruit has a crisp, crunchy texture whereas more mature fruit may be firm or much softer and almost custard-like, depending on the variety.
Anywhere from 100 to 500 edible, brown seeds are housed within the fruit. The seeds are covered by a thin white membrane, which can be removed if preparing the seeds for roasting.
Ripened Jackfruit has a sweet taste and a flavour that is likened to bananas, pineapple and even bubblegum. As the fruit matures, the bulbs become a darker orange-yellow and the taste gets sweeter.
Although rare some people experience an oral allergy to jackfruit, this is linked to the cross reactive plant protein allergen Bet V1, associated with latex and birch-pollen food allergies. Please bear this in mind if you are sensitive to certain foods.
A ripe jackfruit will have a green yellowish skin tone and a sweet smell. Give it a little squeeze, but not too hard, it should give to gentle pressure.
