An Indian man is seeking Guinness World Records recognition for a 113.3-pound jackfruit that grew in his family's back yard.

Johnkutty, a resident of Edamulakkal, Kollam, said his family found one of the jackfruit growing in their back yard was unusually large, and they determined the 38-inch-long fruit weighed a staggering 113.3 pounds.

I bought a thick slice of well-wrapped jackfruit once. It smells a little funny, but the inside tasted good. I have never noticed it before nor since, in my usual supermarkets.

I see jackfruit in Asian and West Indian grocery marts, but have never tasted it.
