Viji's house the jack trees did not bare many fruits, because This year the fruits just fell off before it got ripening. Some thing must have happened since there was no rain until July end and the trees must have suffered  of no rain. It did not bare many fruits and the ones started to grow it fell off and rotten. A few were there to eat. So she gave us one Jack Fruit and it took long time to ripe. Any ways we were lucky to have.
Jack fruit rotti is very tasty and you can have them for breakfast or dinner.
