Young Jack Fruit in Brine 565gms canned. The Jackfruit is one of the largest tree-borne fruits in the world and can be found growing naturally across many tropical countries, including Asia, the Caribbean and beyond. It has a meaty texture especially when young and not fully riped with many nutritional benefits and is considered a delicacy in many international cuisines. When the Jackfruit is young (not fully ripe), it is much starchier and is not very sweet. Once the jackfruit is cooked the texture will be similar tp meat which makes it an ideal meat substitute, great for making curries, stir-fries and salads. Enjoy!
