• With a flavor we’ve heard described as “tart banana,” jackfruits can weigh up to 80 pounds, making them the largest edible tree-grown fruit. While not as popular as the mango, the sight of these green, pointy specimens (they remind us of something you’d see scuba-diving) is a pretty common one. Young jackfruit is said to have a “poultry like texture” (feels like chicken?) and is often used as a meat substitute, while the sweet seeds can be roasted for a special delicacy.
