In the Philippines, we used it for additional filling to make a special Banana spring roll. And yes, it's heavenly delicious.

Cold and sweet, Mix shaved ice (Halo-halo) with Jackfruit. Basically, Anything with Jackfruit is scrumptious.

When unripe, It taste different and is not eaten raw, it's white flesh when unripe can be cooked as a vegetable dish. It's seeds are edible, Jackfruit seeds are high in protein while the meat is rich in fiber. I usually boil or roast the seeds. It gives you an earthy neutral flavor.
