Jackfruit is a very large fruit from southeast Asia with a similar taste to pineapple, but it is not as sweet and juicy. The Jackfruit contains sufficient vitamins and minerals, and is widely eaten with the attempt of fighting cancer, or other diseases.
The outside of this fruit is very prickly, and once it is cracked open, you will find seeds, or "bulbs" which are edible.
