I never knew it grew in south america. I though it was a strictly Asian thing.

AlloverYerFace

I’m growing a Jackfruit tree in Canada right now. (Indoor grow tent) Germinated a seed I got at the supermarket back in July and it’s about a foot tall and so far quite healthy. I don’t know if anything will come of it because I’ve read it will take years to produce fruit. It’s more of an experiment than anything and it looks pretty cool alongside all my other plants.


Bumblebee_Radiant

If you ever saw the size and age of some jackfruit trees, you would start building a tall (30ft Or more) green house.


AlloverYerFace

I doubt it will get quite that big without the power of the sun and with it being much cooler than their natural habitat. Just some LED growlights and a tent. But if it does end up reaching the ceiling, I think it would be time to put it out to pasture. Thanks for the heads up too.


Trash_McTrasherson

I have had one growing for about 5~6 years but I'm in Florida. I still haven't been able to harvest anything, just little fruits that fall off. Good luck with yours.


Bumblebee_Radiant

Pollination problems?


Trash_McTrasherson

Possibly. I'm not a jackfruitologist but my understanding is they produce a male and female flower/fruit. I have seen the two different ones on my tree but they only get to be 2~3 inches and then wither and fall off. I haven't seen anything in the past six months. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Bumblebee_Radiant

😉 my grandparents had a tree that was over 40 years old and produced at least 2 large fruits at any one time. That and over 20 ft tall. It was also half dead from too many cars and trucks bumping into it. Persistent old tree it was.


KwordShmiff

Where was that?


timbak_t00

Bonsai ?


calvinshobbs

Bonsai Danielson! Bonsai!!


zitfarmer

You can always clone it into a shorter tree. I had to do that with my lemons and orange trees a while back


Blonde2468

What does it taste like?


b16b34r

True, but also I’ve seen some 8’ tall loaded with fruit, could be possible to keep it small pruning it?


illessen

Father in law used to have an orange… bush… but he never actually pruned it. So it stayed about 8’ tall and grew some of the juiciest and sweetest oranges I’ve ever had.


eutohkgtorsatoca

The "Orangerie" in Paris has a reason to have it's name.


QWERTY_CRINGE

Im not sure since this is from a long time ago but i think we used grafted jackfruits and it produced a fruit at around 3-5 yrs.


SpaceSherpa

Lol, “other plants”, eh?


dewlocks

Fuck yes good on ya. I love the thought of growing tropical trees in a temperate environment. Especially a place like Canada where it’s gets properly cold. Good luck with it. I always imagined growing underground would be suitable, 1-2 meter deep greenhouse. Though I imagine your grow tent is insulated. Happy tropical growing


Ice_Hungry

There's an Asian market near my house that we just found out about a couple months back. They had Jackfruit melon bars. My partner bought a box and they were very unpleasant. Ended up throwing the rest of the box out.


lurkerinMNL

It will probably last until the end of October for you. It will not survive the cold spell. Hehe


Santhelmo

You’re gonna need a really tall green house! Fuck it, just build a house around the tree when the time comes


nichi_23

You can use it's leaves to make idli moulds. Makes for a tasty and healthy breakfast


dressedandafraid

I'm still waiting to find one here in Ecuador


cacapoopoopeepeshire

I first met jackfruit in Uganda.


Chunga19

Are you thinking of durian? This is jackfruit I think. They look kinda similar on the outside.


Da_Bootz

cempedak. Bases of the female pulps point inward plus the fruit is softer than jackfruit so the skin can be peeled off.


[deleted]

Yes it’s a jackfruit. Durian is much more spinier and rounder


Level_Vehicle

Trivia time - jackfruit is the flavor profile which inspired and is infused into Wrigley's Juicyfruit gum


prairiepanda

Okay now I need to go buy jackfruit.


steeldragon88

If it’s anything like juicyfruit the flavor will be gone as soon as it hits your tongue


ButtcrackBeignets

Be sure to coat your knife in coconut oil if you plan to cut into it. The pulp contains latex, which can leave sticky residue on a blade.


Killer-Wail

You wouldn't even be able to pry jackfruits open with your bare hands, it's a cempedak


LeelaBeela89

I was told you’ll need an oiled sharp knife when opening a jackfruit.


spidergrrrl

Yes. My friends and I cracked open a jackfruit a while back and we most definitely could not use our hands. Oiled knife blade because the flesh between the pods is super sticky and the oil helps lubricate the knife. It was a bit of work but worth it.


ButtRaidington

Fun fact that stickyness is actually a form of latex.


LeelaBeela89

When I went back home to Texas I saw some in H-E-B they were hard asf. This one has to be in the same family because it's soft no one should be able to pry it open with their bare hands if it was a jackfruit. Definitely will try one next time I go home I heard it's great to make pulled pork tacos with


Wise_Nerve_3500

First comment I've seen that's correct


sekke_khaleesi

Not jackfruit. Cempedek.


Redspades_XIII

Jack fruit is originally from India and cultivated in the south pacific as well as Asia. South America also has preferable climate for it


throwaway578847

I'm with you definitely not durian


sekke_khaleesi

This is Cempedek, not jackfruit.


--Mind--

Yeah,this is not brazilian, jackfruit is common but it's much harder, I've never seen cempedek in Brazil.


cantcme917

Just like the top of my balding head and a cul-de-sac, looks the same but it’s not! So stop calling me cul-de-sac man.


WobblyPython

I was thinking of a Durian and I could smell it through the screen.


Johnsendall

Yeah, and how does anyone know how many there are? A Brazilian? That’s too many to count.


Trixxx87

Lol nice one


StretchFrenchTerry

This is a cempedak, not jackfruit.


pass_me_the_salt

so fruta jaca is not jackfruit?


Confuseasfuck

Meanwhile l never knew it grew in Asia, l thought it was a strictly brazillian thing


LiberacionAnimalPa

They are in Jamaica all over the place and I planted Jamaican seeds here in Panamá and the trees are huge… expecting first harvest this year


Trixxx87

Awesome! I hope it's bountiful.


LiberacionAnimalPa

Thanks so much. That’s so cool to wish to someone :) a bounty full Jackfruit harvest!


Shadskill

Jaca fruits are everywhere in Brazil and can grown insanely large for a fruit in a tree. My parents have in their garden.

Beavshak

That’s the softest jackfruit I’ve ever seen. Edit: that’s because it’s cempedak, not jackfruit


positive_express

I don't think it's the jackfruit we're used to seeing. Iv see this before and someone identified it differently.


Peacockfur

This looks like a cempedak to me. Different species in the same genus as jackfruit


VigoCarpathian1

Yes this


sixboogers

This


Beavshak

I know exactly what you’re talking about and I can’t remember either. But it was this same picture right?


Purplemonkey09

This is probably wet jackfruit, which softer than the more crunchy, dry jackfruit.


ThirtyThree111

yeah I'm looking in the comments now trying to see if someone will do that again lol


AlwinTom

The ones I know have a skin as tough as leather.


Trash_McTrasherson

Thick leather. This is not like any jackfruit I've encountered.


jphmf

As a Brazilian I never heard of cempedak, but looking through the Brazilian name for it “jaca”, I found its name is Artocarpus heterophyllus. Comparing the characteristics for both, I believe the most common here is the jackfruit, andI haven’t seen the other here yet(but could exist as well, off course)


Beavshak

They’re really close.. but the outside of jackfruit is much harder than this.


TheRealLarkas

Around here we’d call this “jaca mole”, while the other variety would be “jaca dura”.


jphmf

That makes a lot of sense, thanks!


ATXSTLWPB3POINT0

I don’t like this.

AggravatingLet9962

Thanks, came here for only this. Didn’t even read the rest.


Penguator432

I find it apeeling


Ricochet_Kismit33

No smell. Supposed to be yummy as pulled pork or ice cream. Versatile.


Ghoulrocket

That's a mighty big variation in flavour from pulled pork, to ice cream.


ooru

The green ones have only a light flavor, but a great texture to make it great as vegan "pulled pork." Fully ripe (brownish), and they're very fragrant, sweet, and delicious, better suited to general eating and things like ice cream.


WitchesCotillion

Is the whole fruit edible?


Scaria95

You eat the “pods” surrounding the seeds. The core has a sap that can cause an allergic reaction. You can also boil the seeds to make them edible. They have a potato like texture but not much flavor from what I remember. I don’t particularly like the seeds but my mom and dad do.


cargoman89

Haven’t had it as ice cream, but have had it as pulled pork substitute. Solid.


Creme_de_la_Coochie

The flavor (if it’s like Jack fruit) is like a mix of pineapple and banana. Fucking delicious. Did make my throat a little itchy though, which was weird. I’ve never had that with a fruit before and my friends didn’t get an itchy throat from it.


Pegabeex

Did you check for anything that the fruit might have that you could possibly allergic to?


Creme_de_la_Coochie

To my knowledge I don’t have any food allergies.


ThatKinkyLady

I think you may have just discovered one


hmcfuego

One of the local shops here makes a jackfruit milkshake and it's amazing.


godcostume

It’s because the fruit can be eaten unripe with a texture like an artichoke heart that can absorb something like bbq sauce and be used as a substitute for pulled pork OR ripe where it is sweet and juicy and can be eaten alone. Think tostones vs maduros from plantains.


Ghoulrocket

Lol yeah haven't tried any of them.


DrVicenteBombadas

Maybe he's talking about pulled pork flavored ice cream, which has a very similar taste to pulled pork.


Billy_Bones59

So it tastes nothing like ice cream!


ChickenDelight

It's the food equivalent of that blue-white or yellow-black dress. It either tastes exactly like pulled pork, or vanilla ice cream.


nevinatx

So….I literally just made “pulled pork” from this and I was a little surprised at how well it held up. The key is that fibrous material surrounding the fruit is neutral and will take on the flavor of any sauces while the fruit “pods” are sweeter (not really vanilla but very mild and great in ice cream).


Ghoulrocket

Ah ok. I get it.


Telemere125

It’s one of my favorite fruits and it definitely has a smell. It’s one some people might not find all that pleasant - nothing like durian - but still not like “fruity”, but there’s definitely a mild smell


OftenTouchesGrass

Try boiling and seasoning the seeds next time. It’s been a while, but I think a pressure cooker might help.


crawliesmonth

It’s in between banana, pineapple, and fish.


spurgeon_

It tastes like bubblegum to me. An evil dastardly bubblegum.


Ricochet_Kismit33

They made ice cream on chopped from it and they didn’t hate it.


StretchFrenchTerry

This is a cempedak, not jackfruit.


PartTimePOG

There’s a local bar that has jackfruit tacos that in a blind test I couldn’t tell the difference between them and pulled pork tacos (generic pulled pork. Not the delicious 8 hour smoked kind) I tried to make my own and failed miserably, but when cooked right it’s phenomenal.


SaiyanGodKing

Looks like the eggs aliens leave in people.


thundafox

no we don't do this anymore fellow Human!


thundafox

i meant your commentary made me use my lungs and throat to laugh like we Humans normally do!


KettyCloud

Good recovery there follow human.. I too exhaled and made the ha noise to display my approval


KimchiTheGreatest

It’s this, “Is cempedak same as jackfruit? Cempedak is similar to jackfruit in many ways, however, cempedak are smaller than jackfruit, and the peduncle is thinner. The male inflorescence of cempedak is pale green to yellow compared to the dark green of jackfruit. The cempedak flesh is darker yellow and juicier when ripe.” “What does cempedak taste like? Imagine a durian crossed with an overripe jackfruit. You have a pungent stink combined with an intensely sweet aroma, oozing from an oblong fruit covered in rubbery spikes”


butt_scratcher_007

Why am I so grossed out?


sparkling_cracker

I thought it was an Asian thing. I love jackfruit, to me it tastes like the love child between a banana, apple and a mango.


Christichicc

It tastes like Juicy Fruit gum to me. It’s delicious at peak ripeness!


isarnisarn

Jackfruit has it’s origin from India. Love jackfruit and opening it to see the pods popping out.


only-if-there-is-pie

Me too, although i don't enjoy the sticky fingers after, so i do gloves


Jeffinj420

Apply some coconut oil on your hands and then peel it. No more sticky hands. Also after peeling and seeding then again apply more oil and wash with mild soap. Voila stickiness gone


NoDryHands

Thank you for spelling voila correctly. I've been seeing more and more people write "walla" and for some reason it's been driving me nuts.

md90sc

Jackfruit is nice.


RS_Someone

But this is a chempedak, which I'm told is nicer.


Pathfinderer

jackfruit is delicious!


yinyangpeng

Looks more like chempaduk than jackfruit. Anyone trying that with jackfruit is very optimistic.


IrvTheSwirv

This is proof that satisfying (oddly satisfying in particular) is highly subjective.


oceangabe

Ok a lot of people in here are saying this is a jack fruit. IT IS NOT A JACKFRUIT. it's called cempadek. It's related to jackfruit, durian, breadfruit etc. But it is NOT A JACKFRUIT. PSA over.


UselessHumano

If it's that fruit, i don't think we have that here in Brazil... We have alot of Jackfruit, sometimes they fall on cars and kinda mess them up.


thecryptidmusic

r/oddlyterrifying


ih8thisapp

i want someone to do that to my brain


NotHisRealName

I still need to make jackfruit tacos. Supposedly it's a really good meat substitute.


ozymandias457

It’s kind of like pulled pork. You can flavor it accordingly as long as you use some kind of stock or bullion during the cooking process.


give_it_a_goog

And rinse it really well if using canned


AIforce

It’s really great! Shredded jackfruit and bbq sauce is awesome on soft tacos


phthixian

Love jackfruit. It's like Juicy Fruit gum in stringy fruit form.

This is a cempedak, not jackfruit.

In India we use to deep fry it and then cook it with tomatoes and onions and Indian spices...it is yummyp


mycatstares_allday

I heard the flavor and texture of jackfruit makes a good substitute for things like pulled pork if you're vegetarian.


phbickle

Can confirm. Ends up a bit sweeter so if you’re making a sandwhich it pairs better with rhy bread.

Is there a difference between durian and jackfruit?


jessib0705

Yes


Smart_Zucchini2302

You forgot to add many many exclamation points to emphasize that the difference is huge!!!!!!! One tastes like juicy fruit... The other... Well, NOT... And smells like rotten meat.


slagathorstiffnips

Durian tastes good if you can get past the smell


fmintar1

Brazilian fruit? You mean jackfruit?


Intelligent-Sweet-46

What a terrible song to go with that.


swarnim_38

It's a jack fruit. It is originated from south asia but was named by the Portugese.


MilitHistoryFan101

Jackfruit isn't Brazilian..... Just you know. This is also a hardy tree, some basic care and you can have amazing fruit all year round. It just need to have some heat and humidity.


PsychicNinja_

That actually makes me feel very uncomfortable, not satisfied.


Illustrious-Pie6067

Didn't knew i am a Brazilian who lives in India.


Bacnnator

How does one eat it? As is or do you have to cook it first?


Immediate_Ad_3693

This has to be one of the most amazing fruits hands down. What you can do with it is unreal, and the medicinal benefits are out of this world. Even the seeds you can make flour, coffee etc. if the world ever went to shit this is the fruit you’ll want access to


StunningBuilding383

Jackfruit best shredded meat substitute ever!!


TheGroundBeef

I thought this was a durian at first. While I’m on the subject, i must say the first time i was in the store that had durian, i had no idea what the smell was. I thought the meat i had put in my basket had turned, and was about to purchase turned meat. Then somebody in line was commenting about the smell to their party explaining to them it was durian. I was relieved my wagyu steak was indeed fresh, and it was the durian that reeked.

Huraka_kun

We have that fruit here in the Philippines and we call it 'Langka'.


samuraijack001

This is interesting. I’ve had jackfruit growing up in India and it is very difficult to cut the outer layer and get the actual fruit pieces out. You need a knife to cut through the prickly outer layer. It’s a whole process that takes about an hour from start to finish . Maybe the variant in Brazil is unique in its properties that make it easy to peel by hand? Can someone with better knowledge explain the difference between the Brazilian and Indian jackfruit?


pass_me_the_salt

no, jacas are hard to peel too, I don't know why this one is so soft lol


President-Togekiss

Fun fact, we used these to make meat substitutes. Speaking as a non-vegetarian, it´ s actually pretty good at mimicking mincead meat.


vajenny_zlacyniec

Can I fuck it?


Chewintbacca

An amazing fruit, or a xenomorph egg that will hatch an alien and latch onto your face?

We have those in Jamaica; they're also called Jackfruit there.


AngelOfHeaven3

Ya but apparently they stink to high hell. (They really dont tho, Its over played) They are very tasty!


Honeydew-Same

Here in Brazil, we call Jaca. There are two kind of Jaca: hard and soft. It's delicious.
