Panruti is the well known place for Jack fruits and Cashew nuts. 

A jack fruit is unusual in that it grows directly from the trunk of what is often a very large tree. The shell of the fruit is thick and hard, and the whole fruit is very heavy, like a small to medium-sized watermelon.  

Common Names:

Pala Pazham, Pala, Jackfruit, Jakfruit, Jaca, Nangka, Thai Name: Khanun, 
Origin: The jackfruit is believed indigenous to the rain forests of the Western Ghats of India. Particularly South India. It spread early on to other parts of India, southeast Asia, the East Indies, Amazon River Delta, Territory of Jakarta, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia and ultimately the Philippines. It is often planted in central and eastern Africa and is fairly popular in Brazil and Surinam.  


Jack fruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, reaching 80 pounds in weight and up to 36 inches long and 20 inches in diameter. The exterior of the compound fruit is green or yellow when ripe. The interior consists of large edible bulbs of yellow, banana-flavored flesh that encloses a smooth, oval, light-brown seed. The seed is 3/4 to 1-1/2 inches long and 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick and is white and crisp within. There may be 100 or up to 500 seeds in a single fruit, which are viable for no more than three or four days. When fully ripe, the unopened jackfruit emits a strong disagreeable odor, resembling that of decayed onions, while the pulp of the opened fruit smells of pineapple and banana.

There are two main varieties. In one, the fruits have small, fibrous, soft, mushy, but very sweet carpels with a texture somewhat akin to a raw oysters. The other variety is crisp and almost crunchy though not quite as sweet. This form is the more important commercially and is more palatable to western tastes. 

Each fruit (botanically, a multiple fruit formed of orchenes surrounded by fleshy periantha on a common receptacle) is usually oblong almost round, the green rind consisting of fleshy knobs. The fruit forms a very important article of food with the people, while some of the better classes also relish it, more especially the large albuminous, white seeds when cooked and served in curries.When ripe, the fruit usually has an overpowering odour, but this does not appear to be considered a drawback. The cream coloured or yellowish, soft, flaky pulp is eaten raw, boiled or fried, and used as a vegetable for curries etc. One of the largest fruit of nature’s creation.  
Jack Fruit Tree: A very large tree, native of India, Malaysia, Myanmar and other countries etc:, commonly cultivated and naturalized. The enormous fruits, some of which many weigh up to 70 lb. or more are borne on the trunk and older branches, sometimes down to the base of the trunk.

The tree affords an excellent timber, much used for cabinet work, buildings etc. vulnerable to white ants, lemon yellow at first, it turns with age to very dark red, like mahogany, to which it is but little inferior. It is suited to moist or semi-dry locality up to 2000 ft or higher. In planting, the seed should be sown, first in baskets, bamboo pots, in plastic bags; seedlings from nursery beds will not bear transplanting properly. Deep holes should be dug and filled with rich soil, sow three seeds in the centre and remove the weaker seedings, leaving the shongest one.  

Growth Habit: The jackfruit tree is handsome and stately. In the tropics, it grows to an enormous size, like a large eastern oak. All parts contain a sticky, white latex. 
Foliage: The leaves are oblong, oval, or elliptic in form, 4 to 6 inches in length, leathery, glossy, and deep green in color. Juvenile leaves are lobed. 


Male and female flowers are borne in separate flower-heads. Male flower-heads are on new wood among the leaves or above the female. They are swollen, oblong, from an inch to four inches long and up to an inch wide at the widest part. They are pale green at first, then darken. When mature the head is covered with yellow pollen that falls rapidly after flowering. The female heads appear on short, stout twigs that emerge from the trunk and large branches, or even from the soil-covered base of very old trees. They look like the male heads but without pollen, and soon begins to swell. The stalks of both male and female flower-heads are encircled by a small green ring. 


Jackfruit can be grown on a variety of soil as long as they are well drained, but does best in deep alluvial soils of open texture. Planting on top of an old compost heap would be ideal. The tree needs the best drainage and cannot tolerate "wet feet". 
Location: The jackfruit tree should have a well-drained, frost-free location that is sunny and warm.


The tree will not tolerate drought. Water frequently during warm months and warm periods in cooler months. Less water is necessary during colder weather. 
Fertilization: The jackfruit's requirements are not known, but frequent, weak solutions of all-purpose fertilizer will speed the plant's growth without causing burn. In the regions where it is commonly grown, it succeeds without much care from man, the sole necessity being abundant moisture. 

Frost protection: 

Although mature jackfruit trees will take several degrees of frost, it is prudent to provide young plants with overhead protection if possible and plant them on the south side of a wall or building. Small plants should be given complete protection with a covering on cold nights and even a light bulb if possible. 

Propagation:Propagation is usually by seeds, which can be kept no longer than a month before planting. Germination requires 3 to 8 weeks. The seedlings should be moved when no more than 4 leaves have appeared. A more advanced seedling, with its long and delicate tap root is very difficult to transplant successfully. Cutting-grown plants and grafted seedlings are possible. Air-layering is common in India. 


Little or no pruning is required other than to remove any dead branches from the interior of the tree, so that sufficient light is obtained for the developing fruit. 

Pests and diseases: A variety of pests and diseases afflict the jackfruit tree and fruit regions where it is commonly grown. In California the white fly is a minor pest. 

Harvest: Jackfruits mature 3 to 8 months from flowering. When mature, there is usually a change of fruit color from light green to yellow-brown. Spines, closely spaced, yield to moderate pressure, and there is a dull, hollow sound when the fruit is tapped. After ripening, they turn brown and deteriorate rather quickly. Cold storage trials indicate that ripe fruits can be kept for 3 to 6 weeks at 52° to 55° F and relative humidity of 85% to 95%. Immature fruit is boiled, fried, or roasted. Chunks are cooked in lightly salted water until tender and then served. The only handicap is copious gummy latex which accumulates on utensils and hands unless they are first rubbed with cooking oil. The seeds can also be boiled or roasted and eaten similar to chestnuts. Dried slices of unripe jackfruit are sold in the markets. The ripe bulbs, fermented and then distilled, produce a potent liquor.
