But what is jackfruit?
Jackfruit is the planet’s largest tree fruit. Native largely across Asia and Africa, it’s been known to come in at over 35kg, and with a frighteningly spiky exterior. The thick, ridged rind can be hacked away only to uncover soft pillows of soft, yet tough pouches of juicy, fruity flesh. When young, it remains on the savoury side and sweetens as it ripens with time.
At Upton's Naturals, the jackfruit is picked in infancy, making it the perfect addition to a salty stir fry, umami rice, or creamy curry. Jack packed with protein, fibre, Vitamin C and B Vitamins, it’s a convenient cruelty-free way to enjoy some textural diversity in your dishes.
The Original Jackfruit is Upton’s most versatile flavour. It’s 100% young jackfruit, with no added salts or flavours, so it’s the perfect choice to adapt to your own recipe. Pan fry with your go-to marinade for a fibrous textured topping to adorn your home-cooked stir fry. This variety will seriously adopt the flavours of whatever it’s fried with, so don’t hold back. For a shredded consistency, simply break it up in the pan.
