Jackfruit with its seeds on the side. Jackfruit is sticky but yummy. The seeds are dried and used in curries.

The jackfruit is a species of tree in the fig, mulberry, and breadfruit family. Its origin is in the region between the Western Ghats of southern India, all of Sri Lanka and the rainforests of Malaysia. The jackfruit is the national fruit of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and the state fruit of the Indian states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Wikipedia.

  1. ...a sticky fruit that I have yet to try!

  2. Never heard of it. Looks yummy indeed.

  3. I´ve never seen it here, but on TV they said some use it instead of meat, as it tastes like that - is that true?

    1. Does not taste like meat but has similar texture.

  4. Never heard about it but I think that it is delicious.
