Vietnamese Jackfruit
« on: December 18, 2019, 03:30:41 AM »
Just had a piece of one of the best jackfruit I've ever tried.It has a luscious taste of lemon and pineapple has almost no latex and seems like a winner.

The seeds are small like peanuts and the fruit is small also.

Small fruit, small seeds...
I have a Jakfruit that I got from William Whitman that is called 'Cochin'.  It fits that description.

Here is the write up from Noris Ledesma and Richard Campbell's about Cochin. I had a grafted one a while back but I had heard the fruit quality wasn't great. I'll have to search it out again and give it try.

Cochin is one of the local varieties I tried a long time ago but never see them any more. I remember they are pretty good but didn't recognise it as the same. The grower told me it was brought from Vietnam and selected for having good fruit quality. That is about as much as I know.

Yeah, it was when I was at Gary Zill's and Richard Campbell was there and he confirmed that what I had was Cochin.  I never knew a name for that Jakfruit before that.  We like it a lot.
Also with Gary, I went to Excalibur and we spoke to Richard Wilson about Jakfruit and he said that the only place to look for good Jakfruit varieties was Vietnam.
