Aslan88, I think your prof must have been thinking about something else. I've had a lot of jackfruit, but never any that tasted like gum, unless it was jackfruit-flavored gum! I'd call the fruit itself similar to pineapple/mango, if you subtract the strong taste from both and are left with the sweetness and some of the overtones. The seeds -- when cooked -- have a mild bean flavor, but some of that could be suggestion, since they also have the other quality that beans are noted for. "Beans, beans, the musical fruit/The more you eat, the more you toot".
