Recently, one of our nephrology doctors gave us a humongous jackfruit, or langka/nangka in Filipino. It certainly smells not good at first, but it tastes great. Does this fruit and durian (Durio sp.) belong to the same family?

Well anyway, on opening the giant fruit, we found seeds that have already started germination (even while it is still inside the fruit!)

I put it in soil, and it has started to come alive!

Once it has come up with true leaves, I will move it to a bigger pot.
The tree of this fruit is beautiful as well, as it would pass for an ornamental tree.

Will blog updates on this tree...
