  5. hmm Jagruti that is a tough question. When you buy the whole jackfruit ,those light yellow strands that you find around the jackfruit segments are caled Chakani in malayalam . I dont know what you call that in English .You dont eat it as a fruit, it is tasteless and hard to digest in the raw form.
