Young fruits are cooked as a vegetable. The seeds from the mature fruit are ground into a meal known as breadfruit flour which can be made into bread, pasta and snacks. Dried seeds can be fried or roasted and eaten as a snack. The tree thrives in tropical and subtropical climates and is fast growing and much hardier than the breadfruit. The wood is used for furniture, firewood and can be processed into paper. It is native to riverbanks and waterways so can be used for erosion control and as a source of mulch. The sap of the male tree is caustic and toxic
Other Names: Wild Jackfruit, African Boxwood
