Jackfruit is one of the amazing fruit from god’s creation..It has hard pricky skins outside(which requires a lots of strength to cut it up) and the fruit inside is really sweet and yummy..And the special thing about this fruit is you can’t hide it anywhere because the smell shows itself,it has a lovey aroma..
It is a love/hate fruit..If you love it you will go crazy about this,and if you hate it you will never go near it...I totally love it..
