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.

  1. I’ve seen these huge things everywhere, but I’m always too afraid to dig right in!

  2. I’ve learned to enjoy them if they aren’t too ripe!
