Panruti is a town in the Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu in India. Panruti is famous for extremely delicious Jackfruits and its International Jackfruit Market. The Jackfruit grown here is exported worldwide and is very sweet. Panruti is a business center of Cuddalore district.


JACKFRUIT ( Palappazham in Tamil & Kathal in Hindi ) is India’s most neglected fruit except in Panruti. This sleepy coastal town is a paradise for Jackfruit lovers. It produces the best jackfruits in India – huge, sweet and tasty and has demand around the globe. It's an evergreen fruit & you can buy the fruit round the year here.

The Rathinampillai market located in the center of the city attracts thousands of people everyday from morning 5 a.m. itself. From sunrise to sunset one can see people carrying the Palaappazham (as the Jackfruit is locally called) on their heads, on bullock carts, two-wheelers, buses and cars.
