Do not confuse breadfruit with jackfruit. Breadfruit has no seeds, just a pulpy, fibrous centre that needs cutting out for cooking, along with the hard outer skin. A great carbohydrate staple, cooked as a vegetable or made into very tasty chips.

Dear Daley's,I have seen a breadfruit tree, with fruit, growing in Balmain, admittedly right on the waterfront in a front "yard" of a terrace house.It's been there quite a while as it was very large.

The variety in North Queensland has no seeds and is from Samoa, the variety in Fiji is seeded and the seeds are also very edible something like a chestnut to eat. I would say they would grow well in the Brisbane area.

Disagree with the comment 'not suited to temperate climate'. A very old & established one grew in church grounds at Castle Hill, NSW. Withstood frosty winters. I doubt still exists. Great fun smashing the fruit as a kid.

This spectacular tropical tree produces dozens if not hundreds of fruit in a season. The fruit are 1 to 4 kg and can be used any way a potato is used from baked to boiled, steamed, fried or fermented.
