Jackfruits in India
Artocarpus seedlings (about 10,5 months old)
This is growing behind our house.
Young plant grown from a seed which I removed from a fruit bought from a market in Penang whilst on holiday in September 2002 before eating the fruit. The seed was germinated in Jan 2003 in a glass with damp paper towel.
A young Jackfruit tree already bearing big fruits. Rio de Janeiro, early summer.

Fruit, sliced in half
Each "pod" is a fruit, and the entire fruit can have about a 100 or more of these!
This is all the unfertilized flowers/aborted fruit left after removing the edible pods.
