This Strange Fruit Could Change The Game

This Strange Fruit Could Change The Game

There is a bizarre, gigantic fruit that smells putrid called a jackfruit, and it is the largest fruit in the world.
 
The fruit is native to south Asia, making it hard to find anywhere else in the world. Its crops are some of the most important ones in Bangladesh, where it is also the national fruit.
 

 
A single jackfruit carries hundreds of small fruit lobes that provide loads of nutrients and vitamins. With a tree being able to bear up to 150 jackfruits, this tree could help solve starvation and malnutrition in countries that need help.
 
“It can provide so many nutrients and calories. If you just eat 10 or 12 bulbs of this fruit, you don’t need food for another half a day,” says Shyamala Reddy, a biotechnology researcher at the University of Agriculture Sciences in India.
 

 
India is one the many countries that could use a tree like the jackfruit tree to help provide nutrition to its people, but it remains reluctant to do so. Even though the tree is thought to be native to the country, the effort it takes to cultivate and harvest the fruit seems to be too much for them.
 
With a fruit like this in the world, it’s strange to think that a country that needs help is against its beneficial properties. Maybe one day they’ll see that it is well worth it.
