Jack Fruits, Banana & Critters.

I do not have a Jack Fruit tree in my garden. Jack Fruit tree is a big tree and needs space to grow. Recently, during our visit to an Agro Farm, we saw a Jack Fruit tree and it bore fruits very low to the ground. The fruits are bore from the trunk or branches of the trees.
This is quite a young tree and it is not that big yet.
These are normal size Jack Fruits found at a stall.
This is how a whole Jack Fruit looks like.
The inside of a Jack Fruit after being cut open. We need to wear a disposal glove or oil our fingers, hands and the knife used to cut the Jack fruit.
I bought a packet of Jack Fruit flesh. 5-6 pieces of Jack fruit flesh costing about RM3.00 (approx. 0.74 USD) per packet.
The seed is inside the Jack fruit flesh.
The fruit is fleshy and sweet. It has a fruity, sweet aroma. A skin covered the seed.
A seed with the outer skin removed.
Combs of bananas on sale in front of a house. These bananas are small and it is called hairy bananas or "mo chew" in Cantonese. 2 small bites to finish a banana.
A small fish pond with gold fishes.
Can you see the uninvited guest in my garden? I didn't know it was there sitting in the flower pot until I sprayed it with water and it moved and gave me a fright.
I think it is still there somewhere hiding in between the pots.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Then the Lord said to Moses,

"Go in again to Pharaoh and tell him,

'Jehovah says, "Let my people go and worship me.

If you refuse, I will send vast hordes of frogs

across your land from one border to the other.

(Exodus 8:1-2, TLB)

    1. Thank you, Annie. Even though I am afraid of frogs, I know of their usefulness. I left it be and hope it will get rid of the bugs and pests in my garden for me. I only hope that when I am doing my weeding, it doesn't give me a fright again. Lol!

  6. Nancy, I love to eat nangka! But I dislike peeling the fruit due to the sap.

    1. Peeling the nangka is a lot of messing work. I will just buy a packet to enjoy but it is getting more expensive.

  14. The banana are a great size for kids snacks. I never tasted Jack fruits.
    I love having frogs and toads in my garden to eat bugs. I welcome them and I make sure they have plenty of shade to hide under, during hot weather. They need to keep moist. They are an important part of our ecosystem. I'm sure the toad got frightened too, haha.
    Have a great weekend Nancy.

  26. I take bananas more often than jackfruit as I knew that jackfruit is very heaty, so can eat moderately only. The jackfruit flesh looks thick & juicy. Oh, no, I spotted the uninvitied guest hiding there.

  29. I've seen jack fruits here in our produce stores but have never eaten a fresh one. Only the one from the can. One day I like to have the fresh one but need someone to share it with. It was interesting to see the inside of the fruit.
