What is Jackfruit?
Jackfruit is a species of tree in the fig, mulberry, and breadfruit family. The jackfruit plant originated in southwest India, where it grows abundantly.
Jackfruit is often cooked in vegetarian dishes and many have compared the texture to pulled pork when marinated in a barbecue-like sauce. This type of jackfruit used for savory dishes is green when freshly picked. Once it ripens, however, it's orange and yellow in appearance and becomes sweet and sticky - perfect for desserts and smoothies.
