I recently bought an enormous jackfruit (40lb) which needs a few days of ripening (the price was right). It has a few small mold spots. What can I do to slow down the mold while it's ripening so it doesn't go bad, while still leaving it edible? [more inside]

Why is my fruit rotting while it's unripe?
This just started happening this year when I moved to Arizona. Softer fruits (peaches, mangoes, tomatoes and the like) are turning moldy/rotten in a matter of 2-3 days. If I eat the side that isn't rotten, it's still hard and unripe. Do I have some strain of super bacteria infesting my domicile?
