Another Exotic Fruit - Jackfruit

The Jackfruit is the biggest fruit in the world. It was brought from India and often confused with Dorian (the smelly one), but it's not. Though it does have slightly unpleasant smell, the taste outweighs the drawback. The yellowish soft and flaky sweet pulp is eaten raw, boiled or fried. The large white seeds are also good roasted tasting something like chestnuts.
The tree grows to a height of 50 ft. Its fruits are very unusual and they weight up to 70 pounds each and are up to 3 ft long. They are borne all along the trunk of the tree.
