Look For

A slightly soft fruit with an even colour and small globules of latex on the surface. Ripe breadfruit has creamy to yellow flesh, is slightly pasty in texture and is sweet to the taste. Unripe varieties are firm and evenly green.

To Store

The fruit should be used quickly. Breadfruit does not handle refrigeration well and should be kept in a thick bag to prevent cold damage.

To Prepare

Breadfruit can be eaten raw when ripe or cooked when unripe. Use common potato cooking methods to cook unripe breadfruit. The white flesh has a bread-like texture and a flavour somewhat like an artichoke or chestnut.
