This fruit is not only perfect for vegans and vegetarians, but also for those who want to limit their meat consumption and live more consciously. While the ripe jackfruit is characterized by a banana, pineapple-like taste, when unripe it is a sensational discovery for hearty vegan cuisine. The fibrous texture and neutral flavor that pairs well with spices make jackfruit an ideal vegan meat substitute.
Although the young jackfruit resembles tender chicken in bite and texture, it is actually a fruit that grows on trees. Lotao Green Jackfruit comes from an Indian farmers' cooperative and is harvested by hand. It provides the perfect basis for sliced meat, as well as for wok and pan dishes. Depending on your taste, the pieces of fruit can be individually refined with spices and fresh vegetables.
