What is jack fruit? It's the largest fruit on earth. It is largely grown in tropical or close to tropical climates. I have not had fresh jack fruit for the longest time. When we saw the local Korean grocery has it, we bought it right away. Check out the flesh.
This jack fruit weight 26 pounds.
Opening a jack fruit could be quite a sticky experience if you don't know how to cut it properly. As you can see, my hubby has gloves on.
Once the jack fruit is cut in half, you need to wipe off the gluey stuff in the middle.
Check out the gluey stuff in the center of the fruit.
The meat is so fresh, thick and delicious.
