Where would you find a breadfruit tree?

The breadfruit tree is found in the South Pacific islands and to a lesser degree in other parts of the tropics. It is an extremely handsome tree,growing up to 60 feet high. There are two distinct forms of breadfruit, one seedless and the other containing many seeds which,when boiled or roasted,taste much like chestnuts. The breadfruit,which contains a considerable amount of starch,is not really a fruit in the popular sense and is rarely eaten raw. It can be boiled or baked,served with salt,butter or syrup,and even sliced and fried like potatoes.
