Although it is best to consume fresh, you may need to store it for later due to its enormous size. Jackfruit is one of those fruits that tend to not last very long once opened because of its high water and sugar content. Hence, it is important to know where and how to store them.

When storing outside, wrap them in a cling wrapper to prevent bugs and other pests from eating it. Jackfruit that is consumed within three days can be left at room temperature. However, it is important to still be careful since the warmer the room is, the faster it can spoil.

In addition, jackfruit that is stored in the fridge should be consumed in a week. It is still necessary to wrap the entire fruit with cling wrapper or store in an airtight container to protect it from the moisture and air in the fridge.

Lastly, if you’re planning to store the fruit longer than a week, freezing it, with all exposed parts covered in a cling wrap or aluminum foil, is the best option. (pantrytips.com)
