Edible Jackfruit

The jackfruit tree you saw before is doing well this year and its fruits are ready to be harvested. That I did do and two of the ones most easily accessible (they lay on the ground) were taken from the tree. Ouch! The heavy sap oozed out in protest but that's quite OK. I learned that regular cooking oil easily cleans off the mess. This photo shows you what the edible part of a jackfruit is like. This fruit requires an acquired taste but it is well liked. I only ate a few bites. The rest was promptly gulped down by some friends visiting from afar where they crave the jackfruits that cannot be grown where they live. They loved what they ate!
