Breadfruit is consumed as a staple throughout the tropics, and it can be roasted, fried, baked, or broiled. The flavor of the cooked fruit tastes similar to fresh baked bread and is also described as being somewhat potato-like. Today there is a great deal of interest in breadfruit as a subsistence crop in less developed countries and island nations where domestic food production is extremely limited. The fruit are high in carbohydrates, and they are an excellent source of protein as well. Breadfruit are truly tropical, and they are limited to regions that never freeze. For that reason they can only be grown in the US in Hawaii or the Florida Keys, unless they are grown in a climate-controlled greenhouse.
