Ouch! Is that a fruit?

I took this photo a couple months ago at the Patel Brothers, an Indian supermarket in Jackson Heights, Queens. It is a tropical fruit that is quite delicious.

Can you guess what it is?

Update: It is a jackfruit, which is a kin of the mulberry tree. Click on the highlighted word on the left for more information.

No idea of the fruit, but couldn't resist commenting on the DC subway: it's great! Stations are beautiful, immaculately clean, and the most is the easiest connection system I've ever experienced in subways: one floor rolling stairs up, one floor rolling stairs down...

Probably a jackfruit... or is it a durian?
Whatever it is, you wouldn't want to be sitting in the shade under the tree and have one fall on your head.... could be fatal I think!

It's a jackfruit not a durian.

Also have in your city, of the streets with a name in contradiction with the street? (Street example of the restaurants without any restaurants).
