breadfruit definition and meaning

What is a "breadfruit"?

Breadfruit is a versatile and nutritious fruit that derives its name from its bread-like texture when cooked. Originating from the South Pacific and the Caribbean, it is commonly found in tropical regions. The large, round fruit has a green, bumpy exterior and a starchy, creamy interior. When ripe, the breadfruit becomes soft and sweet, with a taste similar to freshly baked bread. It is often cooked by roasting, boiling, or frying, and can be used as a substitute for potatoes or grains in various dishes. Breadfruit trees are abundant in countries like Jamaica, Fiji, and Tahiti, where the fruit plays a vital role in local cuisine and serves as a sustainable food source for many communities.
