What to know about jackfruit

Jackfruit is a tropical fruit native to Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East. It grows on trees and is one of the largest fruits in the world, weighing up to 20 kg.

The fruit has a yellow, leathery skin that must be removed when opened to expose the sweet, aromatic flesh. The seeds of the jackfruit are edible and have a bean-like consistency.

Jackfruit is consumed in many Asian countries both raw and processed, such as in sweets, soups, and curries. In recent years, jackfruit has also gained popularity in Western countries as a plant-based alternative to meat.

Although jackfruit offers many health benefits, it also contains a lot of fructose and should therefore be consumed only in moderation.
