Jack Fruit Seed
Jackfruit trees are naturally resistant to high temperatures, pests, and drought, making them a promising alternative to more fragile staple crops in our rapidly changing global climate. They’re also phenomenally productive—one tree can yield up to three tons of fruit a year–which is great for farmers, whose livelihoods depend on healthy yields. All that, plus nutritionally dense, delicious fruit? It sounds like a miracle, but it’s true.
There are so many big things to love about jackfruit, we almost don’t know where to start. How about with the fact that the amazing tree not only produces the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, it also produces tons of them? Literally. Because one jackfruit tree can produce up to 200 jackfruit a year, and each jackfruit can weigh up to 100 pounds.
The jackfruit tree is also hardy, easy-to-grow, and resistant to drought and heat, so it’s well suited to adapt to our changing climate. And though they’re native to southern India, jackfruit trees thrive in tropical regions around the world, which is why it’s a staple ingredient in many Asian cuisines. But of course, the biggest deal of all about jackfruit is that it’s nutritionally dense and unusually versatile. Jackfruit is high in sustaining fiber, low in calories, and has a texture and flavor that evolves during its ripening process.
The flavor of young jackfruit is subtle, so it absorbs and complements the spices and seasonings it’s cooked with. It also has a meaty, dense texture that shreds like pulled pork (the Bengali word for jackfruit means “tree mutton”). This makes young jackfruit a wonderfully versatile centerpiece for plant-based diets in nearly every cuisine—from spicy Asian curries to savory southern BBQs to comforting Italian pastas. And as jackfruit becomes more mature, it softens, sweetens, and its flavor becomes more distinctly tropical–like a blend of pineapple and banana. Fully ripened jackfruit is the perfect ingredient for smoothies, fruit salads, and frozen desserts.
