These aren't the usual breadfruit trees! They produce a highly nutritious fruit in just a few years, and one tree can feed a family of four for many years.
HOW TO PREPARE
Breadfruit is gluten-free and can be consumed at various stages of development; ripe as a fruit, or when just mature as a vegetable. Think of it as a tropical potato in the mature stage, since it can then be used to replace conventional starches.
As the fruit ripens, the starches convert to sugars and the flesh softens to a custard-like consistency. Aside from being eaten raw, breadfruit can be baked, boiled, candied, fried, pickled, roasted and steamed. The fruit can be shredded, dried for storage and easily processed into gluten-free flour.
