Fresh Jackfruit
Jackfruit is native to the rainforests of India. It is also found in Southeast Asia, the East Indies, the Philippines and is grown in central and eastern Africa, as well as Brazil. Jackfruit is a tree fruit that can grow up to 80 pounds! It can be eaten raw, once properly prepared (skin, seeds and fiber removed), or prepared in a dish.
