It spread early on to other parts of India, southeast Asia, the East Indies and ultimately the Philippines where ahe attractive tree grows to great heights. It was thought to be planted in Hawaii prior to 1888.In 1782, plants from a captured French ship destined for Martinique were taken to Jamaica where the tree is now common.The total area of planted jackfruit in India was calculated at 14,826 acres and 11,000 acres in Ceylon where it is also used for timber. There can be upwards of 500 seeds in a fruit which are highly prized and often roasted or boiled.
