Just a tip of the iceberg

Our jack fruit tree is laden with fruit. The picture shows just a bit of the tree. The entire tree has fruits. In a month's time they will all be ready for consumption. As usual I have a problem with what to do with all of them as there are not many takers here. After distributing, and keeping some for our own consumption they will find a place in our compost pit. Sad but true. Do you get bumper crops and sail in the same boat as me?

@allknowing No I do not have them now.If you have help then you could make a large quantity of Jack chips.When they are ripe you could make some preserve using ripe jackfruit,jaggery ghee and cardomom.It will keep for long.But it is tedious.

All these labour intensive activities were OK when labour was available easily and that is history now. I would rather someone buys the fruits.

What kind of fruit is on it ? I would love to grow a fruit tree but we have enough trees already here.
