Artocarpus heterophyllus

The last day of May leads to the first day of the hurricane season which is tomorrow, and the jack fruits are getting big... actually, enormous is a more accurate word for this year. Hopefully they will stay in good shape until they are ripe. Wish me luck... Jack Fruit

i know 'arto' means small in latin

i know 'hetero' means same in latin

i always like to try and find out what the plants names mean in english, it gives a better perspective to me. I can see them clearer. If you know what it means in english, please comment back.

Artos means bread
Carpus means fruit
So the name says it's a bread fruit.
