From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Jack \Jack\ (j[a^]k), n. [Pg. jaca, Malayalam, tsjaka.] (Bot.)
     A large tree, the Artocarpus integrifolia, common in the
     East Indies, closely allied to the breadfruit, from which it
     differs in having its leaves entire. The fruit is of great
     size, weighing from thirty to forty pounds, and through its
     soft fibrous matter are scattered the seeds, which are
     roasted and eaten. The wood is of a yellow color, fine grain,
     and rather heavy, and is much used in cabinetwork. It is also
     used for dyeing a brilliant yellow. [Written also jak.]
