Hello there guys! I just want to share to you this huge fruits from my tree at my garden. Well, you have giant pumpkins, giant mangoes and giant fruits everywhere but surely this fruit always grow big when the tree does not have any problem. Yeah, it surely feeds on a lot of water and I thank mother nature for giving me at least ten fruits each year. The last I picked turned to a tasty jam (I made at least ten jars) I gave to my friends and the ones left, enjoyed by my family. This is also a tasty ingredient of "halo-halo", a Filipino summer delight. The candies/pastries are also gaining popularity. However, there isn't much farmer/s growing this one... probably because the seeds are also edible and not much are interested to keep some for planting. Anyhow, this could also be cooked as what they do with vegetables (I haven't tried it though, any recepe?) Do you like jackfruit? Have you tasted this and what was your experience with it?

Ginataang "bilo-bilo"? I haven't tasted that. Man, surely there are lots of food with jackfuit on it in the islands huh. Unripe jackfruit is cooked as a vegetable. I think we have that version, but they call the jackfruit "pakak". I guess it's not the one I've shown in the pictures. Cool!

"bilo-bilo" are small balls of ground glutinous rice. Sometimes, this dessert is called "mainit na halo-halo." Fittingly, it does look like the regular halo-halo with all the ingredients but only hot with coconut milk. But good for you to have a jackfruit tree! Jackfruit is expensive in Manila...

Hai I like jackfruit very much. In my country, a ripe jackfruit is eaten straight away or adding it into a food delight called 'Pengat'. It's so tasty. Besides that, raw jackfruit also can be cooked as a cuisine but I'm sorry because I don't know the name of the cuisine.hehehe

Yeah, it's quite expensive because it does not bear fruit all year round and well, depending on your location too. The decline of planting tropical trees bearing such fruits is also the reason why price can be affected. I'm trying to grow some seedlings so that I can give some to my neighbors to be planted. This surely a good source of nutrition.

Nice to know your jackfruit is that fruitful. Indeed jackfruits have always been fruitful so that the fruits are even enough to feed the whole neighborhood. I love jackfruits too but I don't want the hassle of opening the fruits because its skin has spikes and hard. I do let my husband do that job and I do the eating.

I love eating ripe jackfruit. I don't want it cook I just wanna it it as is so I can really taste the natural sweetness. I also do love cooking young jackfruit as veggie dish. I cook it in coconut milk with some dried fish. I also do enjoy the cooked seeds of jackfruit. I find it really enjoyable to eat seeds of jackfruit while watching TV.
