Breadfruit, or at least the sucker of the breadfruit tree brought to the Botanical Garden by the famous Capt. Bligh, was what tipped the scale and brought us to St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the first place. I love fried breadfruit with soft-yolked fried eggs; they are better than potatoes. But the Hotel and Tourism Association wanted to show that you could do a lot more with breadfruit these days.

Sometimes you can get locally produced peeled and sliced breadfruit frozen in plastic bags which is a lot less trouble.

Which is pretty fancy for stuff that was brought here to provide cheap food for slaves.
