Hi All,

Happened to see this little fruit hanging from the trunk of the big tree. Wondered if this is breadfruit....maybe not.....havent seen one before! Just a wild guess. Appreciate help to identify it.

Tks, Bridgehouse

Hi

Indeed so, here certain people cook curry with jackfruit, if I am not wrong. Sometimes I do get mixed up with chempadak, like sour sop and custard apple when I look at them intact.

So it is the one fruit that you can eat its flesh and cook the seeds! Yes, remember eating the the boiled cooked seeds. Nice. Chempadak has softer flesh. I suppose from the picture the fruit is not quite ready for picking...still tiny. Even the ones at the top are tiny. But then again, I believe the owner is the govt! The tree is by the pavement outside a private condominum along a small road.
