Jackfruit is becoming more and more common in Western stores since it's a popular vegan meat substitute (with a texture similar to pulled pork, but a mild flavor that makes it perfect for seasoning any way you want to)—but if you've only seen it shredded in sauce or packed in pieces in cans, you might be surprised by its natural appearance. The bumpy, lumpy green pods are the largest type of tree-borne fruit, and can grow as heavy as 80 pounds each. In other words, be wary of walking underneath one of these trees.
