Where can you buy jackfruit? You can typically buy it at an Asian grocery store such as 99 Ranch Market. They are usually shipped whole (and likely frozen) from Thailand. You can pick out a good jackfruit by making sure that it is:
1) Has a strong aroma
2) Has many, dark spots covering the spines
3) You can pick it up without hurting yourself
4) It is slightly squishy to the touch
Young, canned jackfruit is also often used as a meat substitute. If you want this, you should buy it in brine as a canned good.
The jackfruit pods are actually a collection of flowers with a seed inside. The fruit grows on the side and on top of a jackfruit tree and is one of the world’s most delicious fruits.
The jackfruit seeds are edible! You can boil or roast them and they taste like mild chestnuts, or you can put them in curries, soups, etc. They are full of nutrients.
How do you eat a jackfruit? As you can tell, you can peel out the pods and remove the white, fibrous strands. The yellow pedals are edible.
Benefits of jackfruit: extremely high levels of vitamin C, antioxidants, magnesium, vitamin B6 and fiber. This helps you poop, keep energy levels up, stave off cancer and helps you sleep.
