Bread of the tropics

One of my neighbours has got this breadfruit tree. It is a beautiful shade tree with maple like leaves. The breadfruit is not a native of India, but now it has adapted to this climate. The fruits are full of starch , like bread. People of Goa and Mangalore cook delicious dishes from this fruit.


  1. Well i remember my mom used to make breadfruit chips from the fruit from our tree back in Cochin. We used to polish them all off in one go!
