Bet you can't eat one of these

We lost one Jackfruit because of Irma but the other 5 are doing fine.
One ripened so I picked it this morning.
We have 4 more that will be ready by early January and at least eight 1 to 2 inch long ones that are starting.
This only weighs 17.8 Lbs and will make a nice addition to the Christmas fruit salad.
The other half of it will go to the neighbor up the street. They are from India and did not know we can grow these. I have 2 branches rooting and will give them those with the chunk of fruit.
Largest one was 2 years ago that weighed 36 Lbs, we only had 3 fruits that year.

Amazing. What does JackFruit taste like? Can you describe it and the texture? I'm always up for trying new things, if I can find it...

I've heard it taste similar to juicy fruit gum. To me it taste like banana, mango, peach and something tropical blended together. The texture depends on if ripe or unripe. Ripe is similar to an almost ripe peach. Green which is used as a meat substitute is firm till cooked then looks similar to pork or chicken. Like soy it takes on the flavor of whatever is used to season it.

One thing about them, they are real messy to prepare. There is a lot of latex in the outer parts and everything will get covered with it if you are not careful.

Sounds yummy! When you mentioned latex, I thought I was supposed to cover myself in a latex suit to prepare it I'm going to look for it.
