Jackfruit in London

Yesterday evening, on the way back home, a yellowish thing outside a supermaket door catched my eye. It looked as food to me, somehow like a strange fruit. I was lucky because there was a man from Bangladesh picking one of those weird fruit packages and I had the chance to ask him about it. He told me that it was a delicious fruit, ready to eat, something called Jackfruit. It was his smile and the pleasure on his face and hands as he spoke that convinced me. So here it is: The Jackfruit.
Back home I googled for a while and I discovered that what I was about to eat was nothing but the seeds of a very usual fruit on asian shops around here. The jackfruit is apparently the biggest among the fruits, it's huge, green and quite bizarre for Europeans, accustomed to apples and pears. Wiki-Jackfruit
A good friend of mine has a brand new blog showing his everyday origami
(Japanese folded paper figures). It's just amazing what he can achieve with a sheet of paper. Origami Photos (en español)
