Here is a pic of a crappy jak I bought on Tuesday from Foodtown as contrast to help people understand how awesome your jak is.

33.33 pounds.

Someday will you share your secrets?

Now that I've apparently killed two more young grafted jacks,  I'm willing to beg.

Ethan you may be confusing Noel with Robert, and the jakfruit with Sheehan (soaking wet of course)!  ;) ;D

I'll say 38, but as that's been guessed already better make that 39.  ;D

Turns out I'm the worst at The Price Is Right. Guessing 37.8 when someone else has gone with 38 is just plain silly!  :(

Unless of course, the weight is actually 37.8......which it very well might be.  This fruit looks to me to be in the 40's in pounds, might be in the upper 30's, but I don't think so. I don't need the seeds so I'll disqualify myself and the next closest would win the seeds if I am closest, but I am going with 42.7 pounds.
