30 Bananas a Day!

I just went to the market and tried my first jack fruit.  It was uber sweet and my daughter loved it but just a few seconds after I tried it the back of my throat started to itch and the inner canal of my ears started to itch.  For about 20 minutes I felt it's effect.  Anyone else out there in Banana Land who has had this happen to them, or with another fruit?

Yes, absolutely.  I've had Jackfruit (in Chinatown NYC) that made my whole mouth and ears itch like crazy, and I've had Jackfruit that was fine (in Thailand).  I'm not yet sure if it's pesticides, type of jackfruit, or the latex that surrounds the edible flesh somehow rubbing off on the flesh.

just bought a whole one from a asian store, chopped it and started eating it... only had a 4-5 flowers or whatever you call them and my throat started to swell... still swollen, eating celery and ice water now to try and calm it down! my uvula is touching my swollen tongue, pretty scary but it doesn't seem to be getting any worse... the latex, or sticky part, was super intense on this one... in the past my mouth itched but never swelled up like this time... bummer because it was so juicy and tasty.. makes me scared to even try it again!!! CRYPES.

Bought an 11kg big jackfruit in Thailand. Ate most of it over 2 days until got a sudden very intense migraine and sharp pain in thigh, throat started swelling, eyes swelling, and my sinuses completely blocked! 2 days later and my nose is stilled blocked or streaming, face swelling gone down a bit. The last bits I was eating had lumps of latex on that I ate as couldn't b bothered to remove so maybe was that. Was my favourite fruit! Never had a reaction before, and eaten large amounts before. Being ill sucks!
