Jackfruit is a species of tree in the fig, mulberry, and breadfruit family. It typically grows in tropical and near-tropical conditions.

The largest tree-borne fruit in the world, jackfruit can weigh up to 100 pounds and grow up to three feet long. The huge trees produce massive, green, oblong fruits with a bumpy, fleshy exterior. On the inside, jackfruit contains many pale-yellow, plump bulbs, which are edible and joined at the core. The seeds can also be cooked, eaten on their own, or ground into flour.

Jackfruit is also packed with nutrients, including fiber and antioxidants. With its huge size, nutrient density, and crowd-pleasing taste, jackfruit could be one of the most promising solutions for sustainably feeding the world. Compared to the intensive land and water resources necessary to produce meat, jackfruit is far more efficient as a global food source.
