A nice shot of this Jack fruit. The fruit is very tasty. I like this. Mukkanis (Ma, Pala, Vaazhai)
One of the famous three fruits of Tamil Nadu - Mango, Jackfruit and Banana. Thank you, Devi. :)

@Sam: Thank you Sam :) I too love this fruit..All the three Mukkanis are avoided by the Diabetics..But i do eat them once in a while and I love mangoes and jackfruit:)

Good shot Devi!

Mmm. Jack fruit is lovely to eat, but can smell a bit odd when you do not know what it is.

outsidersworld from Everywhere, Germany

An interesting looking fruit.... The jackfruit is unknown to me..... I eat lots of fruit and vegetables from other countries.... But this fruit, I never saw.... On the Internet I found a very interesting information about this fruit. I'm trying to find this fruit in our food stores and then I'll try them..... I will then inform you about how I liked the jackfruit.... Beautifully photographed, clear colors and details.... Thank you for showing.

14 Jan 2016 8:31pm

@outsidersworld: Thank you outsidersworld. I shall take some shots of the sliced fruit and the edible parts and post them here. It is awesome tasty.. You get chips fried by using the raw fruit too.
