The 24 Pound Jackfruit
Maybe we can mix some jackfruit into Yani's cat food
I was hanging out at The Standard the other day, and in the lobby encountered Gabriele Marewski of Paradise Farms -- she sells her organic produce to the Standard's Lido Restaurant. Gabriele graciously offered me a jackfruit to take home. I believe she said "Would you like a really big jackfruit?", and I replied "Why not?". When we went to remove the fruit from her van, I was thinking how fortunate it was that I'd taken my car instead of my bike that day.
First question my wife asked when I lugged it into the house was what I intended to do with it. "I haven't the foggiest" I said, and I still don't, but I think ideas will come to me once I get the chainsaw out and cut it open.
