      Hey There! Thanks a lot for this helpful video. By the way, I hear lots of people keep on talking about Monezilax System (do a google search), but I'm not sure if it's good.

      I love, love, love jackfruit. Here in New York, vendors sell the fruit in plastic packs of maybe 5 or 6 seeds and it is, naturally, expensive. It is abundant in Malaysia and I ate it like a greedy pig when I was home recently. Must be good because I didn't get sick from gluttony.

      We have a jackfruit tree in our front yard, it's been there for over 20 years and very useful to us.

      Here, unripe jackfruit is also used as a vegetable. We usually enjoy a dish out of our home-grown jackfruit (with coconut milk, shrimp paste, some small shrimps and/or pieces of pork and/or dried little fish we call "dilis" and cloves of garlic and long green spicy pepper).

      It's my favorite dish (and I inadvertently got myself hungry, hehehe). I enjoy jackfruit that way more, rather than ripe or sweetened.

      I am not aware that it brings many benefits, especially for the skin! Thanks for sharing dhanyya. Voted up and useful. :)
