The Southeast Asian jackfruit is the much bigger cousin of the fig and the breadfruit. This huge tropical fruit can weigh up to 100 pounds! Despite it's size, American chefs are slicing, dicing and pureeing the versatile jackfruit and serving it up in cocktails, savory stir-fries, sweet desserts and more.
