Jackfruit belongs to the Moraceae family and is also known as the jack tree. It generally grows in Asia, Africa, and South America. Tropical lowlands are best suited for jackfruit cultivation, and it is extensively cultivated in tropical regions worldwide. Historians say that jackfruit is 300 years old. It gets its name from the Malayalam name of this fruit called “Chakka”.

This fruit consists of 3 parts: the central core, fleshy bulbs, and outer skin. The fleshy consistency of its bulbs also replicates a meat-like texture. Hence it is also known as “vegetable meat”. A single jackfruit weighs between 10-25 kgs, and the jackfruit tree can bear up to 150 fruits per year. Furthermore, if the tree is old, it can bear up to 500 fruits per year.
