Jack-fruit season has started. I have both hard and soft jack-fruit. The trees are very high and it is not so easy to climb them and get down the jack-fruit. Luckily, the trees serve the fruit when it is ready. When the hard jack-fruit falls it is usually intact. The soft jack-fruit, on the other hand, becomes a mush. A way to get to the soft jack-fruit is to climb the tree and then lower the fruit down on a rope.
My favorite is the hard jack-fruit. Though it is a bit more difficult to get into. Since jack-fruit is very sticky I usually dig into it with plastic gloves and a special knife that I only use for jack-fruit. One can also use oil and rub the hands in oil before opening the fruit.
I am not the only one enjoying the jack-fruit. As you will see, there is someone else who eats, and eats, until there is nothing left… Have a look.
Also, surprise help arrives from two friends, Olamide and Tyler.
