Since I just did a blog on Jackfruit Enchiladas, I thought I'd dedicate a blog to fun facts about jackfruit.
I like fun facts [[and boring facts, too]], and I felt like sharing some with you.
* Jackfruit is the national fruit of Bangladesh AND Indonesia
* It's the largest tree fruit in the world-- 10" in diameter!
* It's suspected that it is an ingredient in Juicy Fruit Gum
* Vitamin Water has a jackfruit drink!
* It has some cancer fighting agents in it, but what doesn't either prevent cancer or cause cancer these days?
* The young fruit had a much milder flavor than the ripened fruit
* The jackfruit tree bears it's fruit three years after planting
That's all I got so far. Enjoy! Try it, it's delicious!
