Hi Asha
You can get that vege in chinese store too Asha.

Hi Trupti
I have posted links and the tin of the Jackfruit. Normally we all eat
ripe Jackfruit, it has got custard color. The unripe one you can use in curries, rice and the seeds which are in the fruit you can roast them or used in curries. It is very hard to cut them, lucky us we got in tin form.

cheers

What do you think about the canned version of jackfruit? Does it taste as good as the fresh ones? We love jackfruit but never tried the canned ones. Your pictures are tempting.
