Bread-fruit is a staple diet in South and South-eastern Asia. Captain Bligh of 'Mutiny on the Bounty' fame was transporting these young plants on board the HMS Bounty, when the mutiny occurred. It is a fruit which could be boiled, baked or fried as slices. The South sea Islanders would put the peeled fruit with pork inside a pit n the ground, cover the pit with leaves and light a fire on top. The fire would be tended for hours. The baked product was served at their functions.
