Breadfruit Inspection Instructions

There are no U.S. grade standards for Breadfruit. These instructions have been developed by the Fresh Products Branch to assist officially licensed inspectors in making inspections, writing certificates and to assist in the proper identification of specialty type fruits and vegetables.

Breadfruit (Captain Bligh, Pain Bois) is native to tropical areas and is used as a staple food by many. It is believed that breadfruit seedlings were brought from the South Pacific to the West Indies by Captain Bligh. The edible portion of the fruit is the white to yellowish pulp. It must be cooked. It is not unusual to see immature fruit on the market as some consumers prefer the slightly immature more than fully matured fruit. There are seeded and seedless varieties.
