|The Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) is a species of tree of the mulberry family (Moraceae).|
The fruit is huge, seldom less than about 25 cm in diameter. Even a relatively thin tree (circa 10 cm) can have huge fruits hanging on it. The fruits can reach 36 kg in weight and up to 90 cm long and 50 cm in diameter. The jackfruit is the largest tree borne fruit in the world.
The sweet yellow sheaths around the seeds are about 3-5 mm thick and have a taste similar to pineapple but milder and less juicy.
Jackfruit is widely grown in South, Southeast Asia and northern Australia.
