Comments: The breadfruit tree is very popular in tropical climates. It produces large fruit with a soft, pasty, yellowish colored pulp when fully ripe. All parts of the tree, including the unripe fruit are reported to pruduce rich milky latex. The large, coarse-textured, deeply cut foliage is normally clustered on the tips of branches.
