How to Cut Jackfruit


Cutting Jackfruit can put you in quite the sticky situation…literally! The sap found in jackfruit is very strong. Before you start cutting you’ll need to oil your hands and keep them oiled as you cut. Follow this step by step guide to get the most out of your Jackfruit.

*Things to remember before you cut. Not every part of the Jackfruit can be eaten safely. Don’t eat the green rine or the white tendons. The yellow flesh and seeds can be eaten. However, the seeds will need to be prepared in a special way in order to consume them. Learn how to prepare Jackfruit see here.


  1. Use a large cutting knife to cut the Jackfruit in half. 20180525_135504_1528068620830
  2. Oil your hands.
  3. Use a small cutting knife to cut the flesh from the tendons. You may just be able to grab them without cutting but be careful. Remember your hands are oiled and you are handling a knife. Be careful so that you don’t cut yourself. You can always just not use the knife or cut all the flesh out without oiling your hands and then remove the flesh after you’re done cutting and have oiled your hands. Use caution.
