When fully ripe the pulp of the Jackfruit smells of pineapple and banana and is pale yellow in colour. It is not very common to see Jackfruit on the supermarket shelf and it is a very specialized item since it is grown in specific areas of the globe.
The taste is unlike any other fruit, some people will not appreciate it, but quite a few will love it. We suggest that you try it at least once.
You may purchase this item at Philipino, Thai or Sri Lankan stores under different brands.
We recommend Mr. Goudas brand because it is selectively handpicked and is consistent in taste and colour.
It may be enjoyed as is, served over ice cubes or complemented with ice cream.
Also in the Mr. Goudas recipes website you may find the popular Fillipino dessert called Turon.
