PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THIS IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR CRUNCHY or SOFT JACKFRUIT. THIS IS NOT JACKFRUIT.
Cempedak. Chempedak. Artocarpus Integer. This tree-ripened, delicious honey-sweet, mushy Malaysian variety cempedak is sourced from Tropical Primary Products’ farm in Darwin, NT.
A species of tree in the family Moraceae, it is in the same family genus as breadfruit and jackfruit. But is nothing like jackfruit. Cempedak has a much softer sweeter honey caramel-like flesh, strong scented fragrance, and eats like a fibrous ripened durian pulp. If you enjoy the texture of durian, you will likely enjoy cempedak.
Its dark green thorny-like skin is much thinner than jackfruit, has very little latex, and it grows in a smaller cylindrical shape in comparison to its heavyweight cousin, usually no bigger than 3-4kg. It can grow as small as 800g with plenty of ripe mushy arils to enjoy.
Cempedak is native to southeast Asia, especially from Malaysia and can be found in Indonesia to the island of New Guinea.
In Australia, they grow in the Northern Territory and Far North Queensland, and as far south as Northern NSW.
‼️Stock is very limited as the farmer has only a few trees. Whole Cempedak fruit will be available to VIPs at $17/kg.‼️
Selection of the "400g box" means you will receive cempedak arils totalling approximately 400g in weight, packaged in cardboard packs.
