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/chips.
