Customer Tips & Reviews Breadfruit
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.
