This is the 2nd of 4 brief video`s which have been produced solely for use on the New Godruma Dhama Farm website. In this short clip, farm Manager, Gopesa Govinda Das explains a little about the growing of Jackfruit on Iskcon`s New Godruma Dhama Farm in Malaysia.
The jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus), also known as jack tree, jakfruit, or sometimes simply jack or jak) is a species of tree in the Artocarpus genus of the mulberry family (Moraceae). It is native to parts of South and Southeast Asia, and is believed to have originated in the southwestern rain forests of India, in present-day Goa, Kerala, coastal Karnataka, and Maharashtra. The jackfruit tree is well suited to tropical lowlands, and its fruit is the largest tree-borne fruit, reaching as much as 35 kg (80 lb) in weight, 90 cm (35 in) in length, and 50 cm (20 in) in diameter.
The jackfruit tree is a widely cultivated and popular food item in tropical regions of India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Jackfruit is also found across Africa (e.g., in Cameroon, Uganda, Tanzania, Madagascar, São Tomé and Príncipe, Ethiopia, and Mauritius), as well as throughout Brazil, west-central Mexico, and in Caribbean nations such as Jamaica. Jackfruit is the national fruit of Bangladesh.

Culminating in Prasadam , a feast of food offered to God , the programe is an abundance of song and dance, lessons and worship and of course the Krishna chant. Both Lindy and I were asked to give a short talk which, to suit the majority of attendees, was translated into Hindi.
