Jackfruit

Nangka adalah nama sejenis pohon, sekaligus buahnya. Pohon nangka termasuk ke dalam suku Moraceae; nama ilmiahnya adalah Artocarpus heterophyllus. Dalam bahasa Inggris, nangka dikenal sebagai jackfruit.

Pohon nangka umumnya berukuran sedang, sampai sekitar 20 m  tingginya, walaupun ada yang mencapai 30 meter. Batang bulat silindris, sampai berdiameter sekitar 1 meter. Tajuknya padat dan lebat, melebar dan membulat apabila di tempat terbuka. Seluruh bagian tumbuhan

mengeluarkan getah putih pekat apabila dilukai.

Daun tunggal, tersebar, bertangkai 1-4 cm, helai daun agak tebal seperti kulit, kaku, bertepi rata, bulat telur terbalik sampai jorong (memanjang), 3,5-12 × 5-25 cm, dengan pangkal menyempit sedikit demi sedikit, dan ujung pendek runcing atau agak runcing. Daun penumpu bulat telur lancip, panjang sampai 8 cm, mudah rontok dan meninggalkan bekas serupa cincin.

Tumbuhan nangka berumah satu (monoecious), perbungaan muncul pada ketiak daun pada pucuk yang pendek dan khusus, yang tumbuh pada sisi batang atau cabang tua. Bunga jantan dalam bongkol berbentuk gada atau gelendong, 1-3 × 3-8 cm, dengan cincin berdaging yang jelas di pangkal bongkol, hijau tua, dengan serbuk sari kekuningan dan berbau harum samar apabila masak. Bunga nangka disebut babal. Setelah melewati umur masaknya, babal akan membusuk (ditumbuhi kapang) dan menghitam semasa masih di pohon, sebelum akhirnya terjatuh. Bunga betina dalam bongkol tunggal atau berpasangan, silindris atau lonjong, hijau tua.

Buah majemuk (syncarp) berbentuk gelendong memanjang, seringkali tidak merata, panjangnya hingga 100 cm, pada sisi luar membentuk duri pendek lunak. 'Daging buah', yang sesungguhnya adalah perkembangan dari tenda bunga, berwarna kuning keemasan apabila masak, berbau harum-manis yang keras, berdaging, kadang-kadang berisi cairan (nektar) yang manis. Biji berbentuk bulat lonjong sampai jorong agak gepeng, panjang 2-4 cm, berturut-turut tertutup oleh kulit biji yang tipis coklat seperti kulit, endokarp yang liat keras keputihan, dan eksokarp yang lunak. Keping bijinya tidak setangkup.

Nangka terutama dipanen buahnya. "Daging buah" yang matang seringkali dimakan dalam keadaan segar, dicampur dalam es, dihaluskan menjadi minuman (jus), atau diolah menjadi aneka jenis makanan daerah: dodol nangka, kolak nangka, selai nangka, nangka-goreng-tepung, keripik nangka, dan lain-lain. Nangka juga digunakan sebagai pengharum es krim dan minumnan, dijadikan madu-nangka, konsentrat atau tepung. Biji nangka, dikenal sebagai "beton", dapat direbus dan dimakan sebagai sumber karbohidrat tambahan.

Buah nangka muda sangat digemari sebagai bahan sayuran. Di Sumatera, terutama di Minangkabau, dikenal masakan gulai nangka. Di Jawa Barat buah nangka muda antara lain dimasak sebagai salah satu bahan sayur asam. Di Jawa Tengah dikenal berbagai macam masakan dengan bahan dasar buah nangka muda (disebut gori), seperti sayur lodeh, sayur megana, oseng-oseng gori, dan jangan gori (sayur nangka muda). Di Jogyakarta nangka muda terutama dimasak sebagai gudeg. Sementara di seputaran Jakarta dan Jawa Barat, bongkol bunga jantan (disebut babal atau tongtolang) kerap dijadikan bahan rujak.
Ketupat gulai nangka, contoh olahan dari "buah" nangka muda.

Daun-daun nangka merupakan pakan ternak yang disukai kambing, domba maupun sapi. Kulit batangnya yang berserat, dapat digunakan sebagai bahan tali dan pada masa lalu juga dijadikan bahan pakaian. Getahnya digunakan dalam campuran untuk memerangkap burung, untuk memakal (menambal) perahu dan lain-lain.

Kayunya berwarna kuning di bagian teras, berkualitas baik dan mudah dikerjakan. Kayu ini cukup kuat, awet dan tahan terhadap serangan rayap atau jamur, serta memiliki pola yang menarik, gampang mengkilap apabila diserut halus dan digosok dengan minyak. Karena itu kayu nangka kerap dijadikan perkakas rumah tangga, mebel, konstruksi bangunan, konstruksi kapal sampai ke alat musik. Dari kayunya juga dihasilkan bahan pewarna kuning untuk mewarnai jubah para pendeta Buddha.

Daun tanaman ini jg di rekomendasikan oleh pengobatan ayurveda sebagai obat antidiabetes karena ekstrak daun nangka memberi efek hipoglikemi (Chandrika, 2006). Selain itu daun pohon nangka juga dapat digunakan sebagai pelancar ASI, borok (obat luar), dan luka (obat luar). Daging buah nangka muda (tewel) dimanfaatkan sebagai makanan sayuran yang mengandung albuminoid dan karbohidrat. Sementara biji nangka dapat digunakan sebagai obat batuk dan tonik (Heyne. K, 1987). Biji nangka dapat diolah menjadi tepung yang digunakan sebagai bahan baku industri makanan (bahan makan campuran). Khasiat kayu sebagai anti spasmodic dan sedative, daging buah sebagai ekspektoran, daun sebagai laktagog. Kayu nangka dianggap lebih unggul daripada jati untuk pembuatan meubel, konstruksi bangunan pembubutan, tiang kapal, untuk tiang kuda dan kandang sapi, dayung, perkakas, dan alat musik. Getah kulit kayu juga telah digunakan sebagai obat demam, obat cacing dan sebagai antiinflamasi. Pohon nangka dapat dimanfaatkan sebagai obat tradisional. Kandungan kimia dalam kayu adalah morin, sianomaklurin (zat samak), flavon, dan tanin. Selain itu, dikulit kayunya juga terdapat senyawa flavonoid yang baru, yakni morusin, artonin E, sikloartobilosanton, dan artonol B (Ersam T, 2001). Bioaktivitasnya terbukti secara empiric sebagai antikanker, antivirus, antiinflamasi, diuretil, dan antihipertensi.
