  1. I do not have the book, though it looks very interesting, so my question may be moot. But I am wondering if you are aware of Breadnut as a food source. It is the seeded variety of Breadfruit, same species but selected over generations for high seed content. (What we know as breadfruit went the other way, for no seeds.) The seeds are delicious and more nutritious than the more starchy breadfruit. They are a bit like chestnuts, and can be roasted or boiled. It also allows propagation by seed, instead of suckers. The trees are of course similar in size and everything else, since they are the same species.

    1. Hello. We are well aware of breadnut. Some communities really like it, others really dislike it for the exact same reason … many seeds. Interestingly breadnut seeds can be milled along with the rest of the fruit to produce a nutritious flour.
