Breadfruit TreeThe breadfruit tree or Ulu loves a hot climate and treasured by many islanders because of it's high yields, Some islanders have been known to survive purely by eating the bounty of the breadfruit tree no wonder they have legends about it.

The English heard of it's reputation and endeavoured to transport it to the Caribian. When water supplies went low the famous captain Bligh would take water away from his crew to ensure the survival of his breadfruit trees but the thirsty crew threw the breadfruit trees overboard along with Captain Bligh. Amazingly he survived.

In Tahiti they cook it in a fire pit with skin on. You can also just cook it on the gas stove or in fire BBQ. It is done when skin charcoals and breaks off easily. Eat as a side dipper like bread. If you have left overs, slice and deep fry for chips.

The breadfruit is a staple ingredient in the West Indies. It can be just peeled and added to any soup when green. or roasted on an open fire, turning regularly until the skin blackens. Then allow to cool and then peel off the skin.slice and eat with stews

I grew up in Fiji and the Pacific Islanders love this. If we picked this up by the river then make a fire and and put breadfruit straight in until soft, just beautiful or at home, slice it and boil it with skin on with pinch of salt.

As a child Breadfruit was my life savior. I used to eat it boil and roast but my favorite is roast. How do you make a roast Breadfruit meal? Well, very simple, all you have to do is to make a fire and place the breadfruit on it and let it roast(30-40min).

My favorite way to eat it is while still green. Coat knife, board and hands with oil then slice off skin. Cut out the middle seed and chop into chunks. put in pressure cooker with water/salt, cook for 15 minutes. Add coconut butter and pepper- Deelicios

I know this will sound strange, but I've discovered breadfruit trees are very likely to grow strong and productive if you nourish the soil prior to the growing with a sufficient amount of calcium.
