Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, reaching 80 pounds in weight and up to 36 inches long and 20 inches in diameter.
Here are Jackfruit in various stages of development. This beautiful and stately Jackfruit tree is in the Hana countryside on the island of Maui, Hawai'i.
Jackfruit is related to Breadfruit, Champedak and Marang (among others) and is a distant affinity to Figs and Mulberries, and the African Breadfruit.
Jackfruit trees are adapted to humid tropical climates and can grow to enormous size, like a large eastern oak. This tree in Hana is very large and just loaded with fruit.
