In a few days' time the jack fruits on our tree will be ready for harvesting. There are countless there and we cannot possibly eat them all by ourselves. No doubt we will sell some of them. You are welcome to enjoy it with us. The video clip shows just one side of the tree.
The tree is surrounded by jack fruits. This is only one side.

I've never tasted this fruit. It is sold over here but is very expensive. I wonder if it is something I would like ... I'm curious now.

It is very sweet but has a strong smell not repulsive though

I have never eaten jack fruit, though I've heard that they are pretty good. Can you preserve them in any way? I'm sure that there are many ways of making jam or chutney but are they any good?

There are several uses of jack fruit. Yes. They are preserved, cooked, and eaten too.

@allknowing I looked at some videos about them. They seem to be enormous fruits and rather sticky and messy to open but it says that the flesh is something like a cross between mango, banana and pineapple and that the (large) seeds can be boiled and eaten, too, like chestnuts. I think that just one fruit would be enough for my family! Good luck with your tree full!

@owlwings Messy is the right word you have used. Once it is cut and ready to eat, you will not stop eating.I have never cut it myself. We have help around (lol) This is how they look I will attempt to make ice cream this year.

They are just growing. However,we get tender jacks from market. They are served in wedding parties in Bengali Hindu wedding feasts as curry prepared with prawns.

How many trees you have? I think some fruits is already big enough for picking. Some are just small.
