Breadfruit

Breadfruit is a species of flowering tree originating in the South Pacific. The tree has now spread to the rest of Oceania. British and French introduced a few Polynesian seedless varieties to Caribbean islands during the late 18th century, and today it is grown in some 90 countries throughout South and Southeast Asia, the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean, Central America and Africa. The name of the tree is derived from the cooked ripe fruit's similarity to freshly baked bread. It has a potato like taste. Breadfruit is very popular on the Seychelles and can be eaten in a variety of ways from fried to boiled.
