More information on Breadfruit
How to choose Breadfruit: Look for firm breadfruit that has no signs of molding around the stem. Smell is key with breadfruit and it will have a rather strong sweet smell when ripe.
Climate and origin: Breadfruit is native to the Malay Peninsula and Pacific Indies.
Taste: Raw breadfruit has a very light fragrant taste that is somewhat like a guava, but not as sweet. The texture of raw breadfruit is rather tough and rubbery. Cooked breadfruit has a starchy taste that is reputedly like bread, from where it gets its name. When cooked the texture of breadfruit turns crumbly, not unlike a baked potato.
Miscellaneous information: The HMS Bounty set sail for the English Royal Navy in search of breadfruit which it was charged to transfer to the West Indies. Water supplies ran low and water was given to the breadfruit before the crew resulting in the infamous mutiny on the Bounty.
