Tropical fruit in the permaculture garden

In Jiwa Damai's organic garden many different fruit trees are growing. Look at these Papayas high up in the tree. Our gardener Ketut brings them down with a long stick, he created for this purpose only.

These bananas are not ripe yet, but will be soon. And then our cook Astri will make delicious banana pancakes! yammi....

Here we see some ripe Jackfruit. Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, reaching 80 pounds (36 kg) in weight and up to 36 inches (90 cm) long and 20 inches (50 cm) in diameter. The flesh of the jackfruit is starchy, fibrous and is a source of dietary fiber. The flavour is similar to a tart banana.
