I just found out that Jackfruit is the national fruit in Bangladesh. In the Philippines, this fruit is native and is always found in the backyard. My mother planted three Jackfruit trees in our backyard. But, since we dont have enough space, she cut the other two.
This tree is what I called the Giving Tree. It provides shade and of course, fruits which the whole neighborhood would enjoy feasting because some fruit would grow as big as 80lbs.

The fruit looks like this and it is very sweet and juicy plus, the smell is really great. Most of the parts of a Jackfruit is very useful for other purposes also. Aside from the fruit, the leaves can be used as wrapper because it has a distinctive natural flavor in it.

The seeds are not wasted also because it can be boiled or baked just like beans. The bark of Jackfruit tree is also used for wood production such as home furnitures. The fruit on the other hand can be eaten even when it is unripe. It is a good substitution to meat curries.
