The Jack Fruit,
The back story is that when we visited Indonesia, my wife brought back two Jack Fruit Seeds and propagated them, one sprouted and she planted it and now we enjoy Jack Fruits and give away lots of it as this plant has more fruits to spare for your friends and family if they love exotic fruits.
The jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus), also known as jack tree, is a species of tree in the fig, mulberry, and breadfruit family (Moraceae). Its origin is in the region between the Western Ghats of southern India and the rainforests of Malaysia.
The jack tree is well-suited to tropical lowlands, and is widely cultivated throughout tropical regions of the world. It bears the largest fruit of all trees, reaching as much as 55 kg (120 pounds) in weight, 90 cm (35 inches) in length, and 50 cm (20 inches) in diameter. A mature jack tree produces some 200 fruits per year, with older trees bearing up to 500 fruits in a year. The jackfruit is a multiple fruits composed of hundreds to thousands of individual flowers, and the fleshy petals of the unripe fruit are eaten.
