Fresh, Canned, and Prepared Jackfruit from Thailand
Jackfruit is one of the most in demand exotic fruits. Thanks to the versatility of its taste, ranging from sweet to savoury, it has become a staple in vegetarian and vegan cooking. Essence of Thailand has been a proud fresh jackfruit importer for many years and we’re happy to introduce a range of canned and prepared jackfruit for all your cooking requirements.
We supply whole, fresh Jackfruit from Thailand as well as canned and boiled and ready to cook shredded Jackfruit. You will also find a range in types of Jackfruit which include ripe, young green, jackfruit in syrup, and prepared jackfruit without seeds and shell. This fruit is fantastic both ripe and unripe, it has different uses depending on what type of jackfruit it is and how ripe it is.
This fruit is known as the largest fruit in the world and when ripe it pairs well with desserts and blends down to make wonderful custards and cakes. Our canned range of jackfruit is a great meat substitute for those looking for vegan and vegetarian versions of popular dishes like pulled BBQ pork or aromatic curries.
We recommend using canned and shredded (boiled) jackfruit for meat substitute dinners. If you are not sure whether jackfruit will work in your dish, it has a slightly sweet but distinct flavour (similar to sweet pork) and a texture reminiscent of pineapples but less juicy. When using the whole fruit the seeds can also be used, once the jackfruit is ripe, they are very rich in protein and taste a bit like brazil nuts.
