Why the Name Jackfroot?

Throughout the world, there are dozens of fruits that are commonly recognized and consumed more than others, such as apples, oranges, strawberries and bananas.

The jackfruit is a fruit which is native to parts of Southern and Southeast Asia. Large and prickly, it is a rare fruit that’s not regularly eaten or tasted by society. We wanted to use a fruit that symbolized and represented the fact that Asian Americans are rarely exposed in mainstream media.

All Asian Americans are deeply rooted with their background and culture that date back to their original countries. We added a twist to the name by combining the words ‘Jackfruit‘ and ‘Root‘. And that’s the story of how the name Jackfroot was born.
