Description

Jackfruit is available as a whole fruit, sliced into sections or packaged. The packaged variety is unripened and less sweet, making it ideal for using as meat substitute in vegan recipes. The seeds are also edible and can be roasted like nuts. Ripe jackfruit should be slightly soft with a strong fragrance and a yellowing exterior. If you purchase green jackfruit, let it ripen at room temperature until ready. While it’s a bit of work to get to the fleshy interior, you’ll be rewarded with unmatched flavor!

Don’t want to buy the whole thing? Just ask a Whole Foods Market® Team Member to slice off a section for you!
