Jack Fruit-Largest Tree-Borne Fruit on the Planet

(Bangla) Katal, the national fruit of Bangladesh!  You either love it or you don’t!

After a morning football (soccer) match they shared this fruit with us. Credits go to my son, Austin for the photo. I had taken my grandson to the field to play football with these guys, trying to get in a few matches before Ramadan started.

The one photo is of me reaching for my “bulb” of Jack Fruit!  It is a species of tree in the mulberry and fig family.
