Breadfruit was named as such for its bread-like texture. It grows as oval- or round-shaped large fruit with a rough surface. As it ripens, it turns from green to a rich brown color.
Store breadfruit in a thick bag in the refrigerator up to one week. The skin color will darken in the refrigerator.
Enjoy the insides of breadfruit mashed or sauteed with garlic and oil. It can also be candied, pickled, or cut into strips to make breadfruit French fries. Enjoy breadfruit mashed or sautéed with garlic and oil. It can also be candied, pickled, or cut into strips to make French fries.
