I grew up seeing my mother and grandmother cooking jackfruit seeds. I used to hang around them until they were all cooked and ready to eat. How I enjoyed those days of living naturally and eating and reaping the health benefits of these wonderful herbs that God has created. We had two jackfruit trees in the yard and so it was so easy to garner the seeds after devouring the delicious and nutritious fruit.


They would make sure to share out my jackfruit seeds because I was always greedy and ready to eat more than my share. I just add a little salt after they were well cooked and enjoyed my delicious jackfruit seeds. However, at that tender age, I never had an inclination of the health and herbal benefits or the nutritional values that I was getting from them.

Today, I appreciate them even more because I am now aware of how important the seeds are, just like the fruit itself. For those of you who eat the fruit and then throw away the seeds, you are throwing away nutrition that is good for you.

Jackfruit seed is rich in potassium, starch, calcium as well as iron. It also consist of vitamin B1 and Vitamin B12 as well as antioxidant.

Jackfruit seed is a good remedy for ulcer of the stomach, high blood pressure or hypertension, constipation as well as it may fight against cancer.

Boiling and preparing jackfruit seeds is very easy, even a novice can do it. Put as many jackfruit seeds in a pot, cover them with enough water, add desired salt and put to boil. Cooked jackfruit seeds should be tender. Take off outer covering and consumed. I am just too lazy to peel off the outer skin, so I just pop it in my mouth, use my teeth to separate the skin from the seed. It is as simple as that.

Thanks! I discovered jackfruit, but now I will try this with the seeds. I have 20 bulbs here, so that should be enough for a little feast of seeds!

Thanks for your comment Nevado Cato!! There is no need to shell the seeds because the outer covering gets very soft when it is cooked. It is easier to shell the seeds when it is cooked.

I have recently bought jack fruit. I love it! The seeds, can they be shelled before boiling?

Kind regards
