About the size of a grapefruit, breadfruits have a striking texture to their rind. Similar to jackfruit, breadfruits have dull, spiky bumps all over the fruit. As breadfruits mature, the color of their peel changes. They begin as bright, verdant green fruits with a bumpy rind. A ripe breadfruit will mature into yellowish green color with a more relaxed, smooth peel. Inside, the flesh is white to pale yellow.
There are many varieties of breadfruit and not all of them have seeds. When they do, breadfruits have dark, oval shaped seeds that are pointy at one end. The seeds are usually roasted and seasoned for peak tastiness.
