I had always seen this at the asian markets and the juice being served at vietnamese juice stands but never had a chance to try it until last night. Its a very unusual fruit in that it has an unsual texture(semi slippery-almost like squid or albalone) and an usual taste(think floral essence mango with bubble gum). It is a labor heavy fruit-one must cut it into quarters, then dig out the pods, the seed the pods before eating the edible portion. If anyone here has had any experience with a Durian-this is kind of Durian Lite.

Some at the BBQ were repulsed but I found it very good, I would certainly love to try it again and maybe squeeze some lime on it. Anyone else have any jack fruit experience and creative ways to serve it?

Here are some pics...

If you havent tried this by all means do....it literally tastes like bubble gum.
