Jackfruit bulbs have a unique flavor with a rich and sweet aroma. The seeds are a good source of protein, and can be used like vegetables and pulses in many Asian cuisine especially in curries. Jackfruit is actually a summer season fruit. A handy tip when peeling jackfruit : as you cut into the fruit to reach the bulbs, apply a small amount of edible oil on the hands to help separate the bulbs. This will help to overcome the white sticky latex that oozes out.
