Size of Jack fruit leaves is bigger in comparison of Guava leaf.

You can take out leaf extract. Like jack fruit and dial and preserve it for months in your fridge.
Other options are teak leaf and banana. Remember to use them only when they are dry like papad. And best is dial because it has anti bacterial extrants , tanin and other goodies.

This 'milk' is usually dangerous and you can see even cattle will not graze on them, forget fish tolerating them. So when you break the leaves for use, observe closely. I have a guava tree in my front yard and its leaves are usable.


Thanks Romi (sure I remember you :) )... guava sounds like a good option... seems like I am goig to disturb you guys once again?

Yes Guwava is good, Jackfruit is like Banyan and from plants with milky sap the following can be used without any problems. Banyan, Peepal, Jackfruit, pilkhan

Thanks, will wait for the next meet. One question though... are they small in size?
