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?
