Jack Fruit

And here's the owner of the bicycle with a jack fruit (Artocarpus intergrifolia) he harvested from a tree on the main Bosque trail. Called jaca here, it's an exotic originally from Asia. You would think it's native of Brazil because wherever you go in the country, there's the tree. It's a delicious fruit, if mature. The one that Cleuson is hold is not fully ripe. It will "rest" in a dark place for 3-4 days before it's ready to eat.
