Jako in Chacala

This is a Jaka fruit. That's the nickname, and I can't remember the long name. It's ripening right now on this tree in front of Socorro's, but I am not sure if it has a season or if it grows year around here.I haven't eaten it yet, but people say the inside looks funny and tastes good and sweet. We'll see.

I haven't heard of the Jaka fruit before but they look great. Be sure to let us know how it tastes.

I tried jaka fruit last year when we made a trip from aguascalientes (where i was living) to nayarit. It is so super yummy and especially when it's in a paleta! you must try it.

I've only seen it here in vancouver once - sold as a powdered bubble tea.

Hello Gardener,

The Jaka fruit is called Jack Fruit on Christopher's blog from Hawaii. Did you catch his post about tropical fruits? Do you have any of these?

The Jack fruit looks familiar to me, too - maybe showed up at our Fiesta market which carries many unusual fruits and vegetables.
