Tree Love Jackfruit tree

On my last visit to a water park named Black thunder in Mettupalayam which the nearest one from my hills, I potted this fruity tree.

While my kids were enjoying the rides the Tree Hugger in me spotted this fruity beauty and how can it go without a click. Sharing with you glimpses of Jackfruit tree I saw there.

 

I love jackfruit/ Kathal ki sabzi a lot, and watching these on trees I so wished I can just go and pluck them.

The jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus), also known as jack tree, is a species of tree in the fig, mulberry, and breadfruit family. Its origin is in the region between the Western Ghats of southern India and the rainforests of Malaysia.

So if they are native to my land they certainly need special reference and mention.

You can see the toy train track near the tree. I’m amused and curious to know does the theme park people planted it intentionally, who would be plucking its jackfruits or does this tree go just without notice?

    It’s beautiful and I also have lovely memories around Jackfruit trees. My nani’s house had many trees and as kids we would go to watch when people came to pluck them. Kathal ki sabzi and achaar are my favorite. 🙂
    Thanks for joining, Pragun and making me go back to my childhood days. 🙂

    I don’t like jackfruit, but I love that tree! I don’t think I’ve even seen one with fruit on like that.

    Such a majestic tree, that is! The fruits are so huge!!!
    I don’t like jackfruit but my mom loves. It’s quite popular where I live. Seen people selling it by the roadside and kids happily devouring it.

    Thank you for joining our Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
    Wish you a fabulous week.

      Thankyou Esha for admiring the tree,
      I too like jackfruit when it’s raw and crunchy but I hate it when it’s ripe and locals to my place enjoy the ripe fruit like anything.
      My pleasure joining you on WW

  6. Massive and bearing well! I am not at all fond of jackfruit though 🙂

    • PraGun says:

      Thanks for stopping by yes the fruits are massive and hold is intact.
      I love it raw and crunchy and I don’t like it when it’s ripe.

  7. I’ve never seen a jackfruit tree or tasted the fruit. They don’t grow over here in the UK so seeing this was very interesting.

    Dear Pragun,

    I’m a big fan of jackfruit and the tree in itself. Love the intriguing features. Jackfruit has many childhood memories and those from Singapore too.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Happy week!

    • PraGun says:
