This jackfruit tree is in my sister’s house and it’s a most pleasing thing to see such a relatively small and young tree bearing these giant fruits.
Like coconut oil, jackfruit is also going international. I say going because I consider both coconut and jackfruit native to my childhood environment.
When British Prime Minister Theresa May visited India, the grand dinner menu had jackfruit biriyani in it. Apparently this biriyani is a craze in London restaurants.
Admittedly, it’s not something we have tried. We have been busy with the numerous uses of jackfruit and the tree, like the solid wood, leaves in Ayurveda treatment, fruit from its formation stage to the ripened and even the seeds.
Then the finding that jackfruit cures diabetes! Wow!
So jackfruit biriyani is in the radar, with or without any meat.
And of course, I have to plant a few of these lovelies.
