I can smell the jack fruit

We got a customer to buy our jack fruits.  We have kept a few for our own consumption. It was a bumper crop.  It is the third day today and I can already smell the jack fruit.  We will clean one of them and make packets for future use.  They will be frozen. I distributed  a few to our neighbours.  

When the jack fruit begins to ripen the smell permeates the entire area.  So strong is its smell. Cleaning a jack fruit is a laborious process.  We have help around.

I will preserve the seeds as well.  They have to be washed, dried and buried in sand. Seeds are boiled with salt and the taste is great. 

  • Do you get jack fruits where you lie?

    • Yes
    • No
