What we look for in Sustainable Jackfruit

Variety/Type Descriptions

ARTOCARPUS ALTILIS At full maturity, Jackfruit can measure up to 80 centimeters long and 50 centimeters wide, and can weigh anywhere from 10 to 50 pounds. The rind of a Jackfruit will change color from 11 bright green to a dull yellow as it ripens and it may develop dark patches. Inside of the fruit, just beneath the rind are the bright yellow ‘bulbs’ which make up the edible portion of the Jackfruit. A pithy core runs down the length of the fruit and connects the bulbs to the rind. The fleshy bulbs are 5 to 7 centimeters long and triangular.The aroma of a mature Jackfruit has been described as off- putting, similar to overripe fruit. Younger fruit has a sweeter aroma. Jackfruit has a sweet taste and a flavor that is likened to bananas, pineapple and even bubblegum. As the fruit matures, the bulbs become a darker orange-yellow and the taste gets sweeter.
