General Information

The jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus or Artocarpus heterophylla) is a species of tree in the mulberry family (Moraceae), which is native to parts of South and Southeast Asia. It is called Panasa in Sanskrit, Katahal in Hindi, Pala in Tamil and Chakka in Malayalam language.
The jackfruit is something of an acquired taste, but it is very popular in many parts of the world. The sweet yellow flesh around the seeds is about 35 mm thick and has a sweet taste. The Mexican variety of the Jackfruit tastes of fruit cocktail. Flavours of pineapple, strawberry, and peach can be discerned in some varieties of jack fruit. The Mexican variety bears smaller fruits than the S.E. Asia type and the trees are likewise smaller.
