Jack Fruit

Kim discovered there was a sale on jack fruit at the local asian supermarket. Since we are both fans of this tropical fruit, she picked up this beautiful ~15lb specimen. I'll probably cut it either tomorrow or Sunday, depending on ripeness.

I remember jack fruit from the days when we lived in Zambia. I remember there being a jack fruit tree in the yard to the house behind ours and consuming a lot of the fruit.

I found jack fruit again at an asian store in Toronto, but it was only as portions of the fruit. It wasn't until coming to California that I was able to find the whole fruit for sale.

Anyway, the fruit has a fairly unique flavour, definitely try it if you get the chance.

Kim also picked up a nice looking pineapple, so I shot it as well so it wouldn't feel left out.
