You can boil and roast or fry the seeds too. Those are my favorite part of the jackfruit.
I have mulberry trees ALL OVER my property! They're constantly sprouting up all over the place, courtesy of birds who visit my yard. I now have my gardener dig up the little saplings and I give them away to friends and relatives to plant in their yards. I have around 10 trees that are keepers, the tallest of which is about 25'.Then today, I spent another $20 on mulberries, dragon fruit, and goji berries--also so that I can say that I have tried them and to experience the taste of each fruit.
It's a privilege to eat imported foods; then to think you're taking away food from people of that country (most likely impoverished).
