Maia doesn’t usually play favorites when it comes to food, but she has a special love for jackfruit. Jackfruit is incredibly sticky, has a sickly strong smell, and is definitely an acquired taste. But most of the girls really like it, and Maia will follow that smell anywhere.
Thankfully the jackfruit trees grow on the other side of the property. To Maia’s (and Shirlei’s) joy, they are currently in season.
This video is Maia trying to eat a touch underripe, 2-3 foot long (just under a meter long), jackfruit. Despite her size, it doesn’t quite fit in her mouth whole. It did however make her afternoon, and caused some smiles watching her try.
