How to Cut a Jackfruit


Jackfruit is a fruit native to India. It is consumed fresh or added to some traditional Indian recipes. The world's largest tree-borne fruit, it has rough skin, yellow flesh, large seeds and a white core. Cutting jackfruit is often difficult because of its large size and thick skin.

Things You'll Need

  • Sharp knife
  • Vegetable oil
  • Paper towels
  • Use a large, sharp knife. Jackfruits can be very big; the largest one in history weighed over 80 pounds.

  • Rub your hands and knife with vegetable oil so that the fruit will not stick to your hands. Jackfruit milk is very sticky.

  • Cut the jackfruit in half and pull the two sides apart. Since the core is tough, dividing jackfruit requires a lot of physical exertion.

  • Cut especially large or long jackfruits in quarters or even eighths.

  • Using your hands, pull out the little pieces of fruit. Discard the core and skin since they are inedible.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can cook jackfruit flesh and eat it; you may also cook the seeds and eat them like nuts.
  • Clean up afterward since jackfruits are messy.
  • Don't overeat them because they are mildly laxative.
