Jackfruit is the national fruit of Bangladesh and is the biggest fruit that grows on a tree in the world. Some specimen of this fruit can weigh up to 100 pounds. The skin of the fruit is thick, hard, and green, and the flesh inside is colored, versatile, and full of nutrients.

This fruit is extremely popular among vegans, and it offers numerous health benefits as it is abundant in important nutrients.

It is rich in magnesium, vitamin C, A, B6, calcium, fiber, protein, potassium, and iron. Only a cup of this fruit will provide 25% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin B6, which is again a great advantage if you are a vegan, as your diet lacks this vitamin, and 11% of the daily recommended allowance of fiber which will boost digestion.
