Now, if you’re not a true food expert, you might be wondering what Jackfruit is. I know I was! It’s native to Southeast Asia, and popular in tropical locations of the world. It’s a great source of fiber, and tastes like a combination of apple, mango, banana and pineapple (fruit punch, perhaps?). It’s also the largest fruit to grow on a tree. Not only is the fruit edible, the seeds are as well and protein, potassium, calcium and iron! The fruit is high in Vitamin C.
