Jackfruit (Artocarpus Heteropphylla) is the biggest fruit which has a thorny projection on the outside and an intensely sweet and delicious soft flesh inside. They are typically found in South East Asia and has its origin in India.

Jackfruit is abundantly available in Kerala during summer season. In Malayalam jackfruit is known as 'Chakka'. Since jackfruits are not available all round the year, matured jackfruits can be dehydrated and stored for later use. This can also be used for the making Chakka puzhukku, pickles and fried chips.
