As you can see jackfruit contains a hint of phosphorus, quite a lot of acidic content, but an awful lot of sugar content.

This means that rabbits cant eat jackfruit because it is just too sweet for them to eat. If they have a nibble of it, that would be fine but nothing more than that as it will just hurt their tummies unfortunately.
