Watermelon is one of the most popular fruits today. Fruit lovers love it because of its juicy flesh and large size. However, there are other big fruits that are just as delicious – and even larger than watermelons. So if you’re planning to prepare a dish that requires a lot of fruit, don’t worry: these giant fruits will be able to help you out.
While pumpkins are technically a fruit, they’re much larger than watermelons. The largest pumpkin ever grown weighed in at 2,480 pounds.
Pumpkins are also used to make Jack-o’-lanterns, which are hollowed out and carved. They’ve been around since the Middle Ages and have become an integral part of Halloween celebrations today.
Jackfruit is a large tree fruit that grows in tropical climates. This means it can be grown in places like India, Brazil and Indonesia, where jackfruits grow naturally on trees.
Jackfruit is one of the largest fruit in the world. The jackfruit tree is native to South Asia but has many cultivars around the world. It’s generally sold fresh or canned and eaten as a vegetable—a good source of potassium and vitamin C—or used in cooking to replace meat in curries or other dishes when desired (such as when you’re vegetarian).
Durian is a tropical fruit native to Southeast Asia that is known for its strong smell. It has been described as smelling like onions, garlic, and rotting meat. In fact, durian is considered so unpleasant that it’s banned on Singaporean public transport and in hotels around the world.
However, some people love this stinky treat. Durians are sold at markets throughout Southeast Asia where they’re often eaten by themselves or made into desserts like ice cream.
Although durian contains more calories than one might expect from such an exotic-sounding fruit (about 500 calories per cup), it’s packed with nutrients like vitamin C and potassium–and some studies suggest that these benefits outweigh the cost of extra weight gain if you eat lots of durians every day.
The coconut is a fruit of the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). The entire fruit is edible and can be used to make oil.
Coconuts are classified as drupes because they have a hard shell like peaches or plums do; however, their seeds are not nuts but rather aril pips—arils being the fleshy part around the seed in drupes—so they’re technically not nuts either.
When it comes to fruit, size matters. The biggest fruits are some of the most delicious and nutritious. They can be eaten raw or cooked in a variety of ways which makes them perfect for any recipe.
