Both yellow-skinned and purple-skinned kinds are worth tasting, they are quite similar, yet yellow passionfruit is a bit tarter. A ripe jackfruit is big and weights about 20 pounds.

Most fruits ripen in wet and hot summer season, starting from September when jackfruit and muskmelon are harvested, through December, when lychee harvest take place.
