Jackfruit is an exotic fruit grown in
tropical regions of the world. It is
native to South India and Sri Lanka,
but thrives abundantly in tropical
countries such as Philippines,
Thailand, Vietnam and even Brazil. It
is part of the Moraceae plant family,
which also includes fig, mulberry
and breadfruit. Jackfruits vary in
shape, but usually they are oblong.
Like its brother Breadfruit, it has
short rough protrusions, and usually
turn from green to yellow-green
when ripe and gives off a distinct
sweet smell.
