Lamthong presents the goodness of Thai jackfruits in this Jackfruit in Syrup 565g pack. With this, you can enjoy the delicious taste and get all the health benefits of hand-picked jackfruit round the year. The tree of jackfruit belongs to the mulberry family and is native to South and southeast Asia. Tropical lowlands are the best suited for its cultivation. The fruit, when mature, can be up to 80 pounds and is reputed to be the largest fruit growing on trees.
The fruit is covered by a thick and prickly skin which is not edible. Inside are numerous bulbs of flesh containing seeds within. This is the edible part of the fruit. Unripe fruit is cooked and eaten with curry and resembles meat in taste and texture. Seeds can be roasted and eaten. They resemble chestnuts in taste. The unripe tree oozes out a thick, sticky liquid which makes peeling and cutting difficult. People often oil their hands before handling the unripe fruit.
The ripe fruit has a soft, mushy, yellow-colored and very sweet flesh. A very strong, sweet aroma accompanies the ripe fruit which may not be attractive to some Western tastes. One particular variety has crunchy rather than mushy flesh in the ripe fruit and is generally the most adored variety of jackfruit.
Jackfruit is not only delicious in taste but is also full of vitamins and minerals with medicinal properties. It contains abundant quantity of vitamin A, C, and those of the B group, Iron, Folate, Calcium, Selenium and Potassium. Because of high amount of Potassium it lowers blood pressure. Because of its phytonutrients, isoflavones and antioxidants, jackfruit has cancer and ulcer-fighting properties.
Now get all these benefits, along with a great taste, in Lamthong’s Jackfruit in Syrup 565g pack. You can eat it without any seasoning as snacks, or season it with other fruit slices, cream and ice cubes, and enjoy it as an appetizer or dessert.
