Did you know that Jackfruit, is actually a species in the same family as Mulberry, fig and breadfruit? It grows in hot climates like Thailand, Asia, Indonesia and Africa.
The massive fruits can reach sizes of up to 40kgs in weight! A single tree can product up to 200 fruits a year. Some people question if this could be the answer to our sustainable food issues!
In recent years jackfruit has become popular as a substitute for meat and works perfectly in a curry, pulled 'pork' style as the flesh just falls apart, Asian and stir fry's. The flavour is mild thus taking on whatever it is put with.
