A 20 kg Jackfruit, compliments from the park.

 It's a hefty fruit.  Weighing 20 kg and fully ripe.  Today I harvested the tree fruit known locally as 'Nangka'.  It is very succulent and possesses a very distinctive aroma.
It's a good way to start the new year eating fresh fruits to your heart's content.
Knowing that it is free for the eating makes you feel a lot happier.
Compliments from the park.
Below are close-ups of the delicious fruit.
