Artocarpus altilis

Breadfruit tree

Evergreen tree up to 20 metres high with white latex. The leaves are up to 80 cm long, deeply lobed, leathery and dark green. The aggregate fruits are green, up to 30 cm in size, with a rough surface and white, floury pulp.

We planted out the breadfruit tree from Thailand in 2013 and were able to supply the kitchen with its first fruits in 2017.

The starchy fruits weighing up to 4 kg are used for making French fries.
