Scientifically named Artocarpus heterophyllus, the Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world. It is commonly used as a staple food (alternative to rice) in Sri Lanka. For those looking for a plant-based alternative to meat, Jack-of- all-fruits is becoming more popular around the world. When the Jackfruit is cut in half, bright yellow pods (when ripe) appear which can be eaten raw or cooked. The ripe fruit has a strong, sweet, fruity smell. Its neutral flavor is ideal for all kinds of seasonings and can be used in a variety of cuisines.
