The Jackfruit is the largest fruit in the world. No kidding. Believe it or not, the Jackfruit is a close cousin of the fig and breadfruit. It grows in tropical areas and since we live in one, we can usually procure a few.
The Jackfruits are hot. This is one of the hottest "newly discovered fruits" that people are using as a vegan meat replacement because of its meaty texture and awesome neutral flavor that will take the flavor of the sauce or spices you use.
This fruit is huge, we can only fit one in a box so we are talking about a single fruit that weighs in at about 10 to 14 pounds. I held one up for a picture and it was a total workout!
