The World's Biggest Tree Fruit Is Huge

Native to India, the jackfruit is the world's largest tree fruit. A jackfruit tree takes five to seven years to bear fruit, and may yield 150 to 200 fruits annually. Seeing as a jackfruit can weigh up to 100lbs (45.4kg), that's quite a lot of fruit. The fruit is described to have a distinctive smell, and the flavor draws comparison to that of Juicy Fruit gum.
