Default How about breadfruit?

I just watched a past show I recorded from Emeril Lagasse's Florida series. He showcased Miami in this show and one restaurant he visited made fish tacos but the taco shell was made from breadfruit - which is a much much healthier alternative. It looks like a fruit but the taste is more bread-like. I then googled it and I guess the closest to where it grows is the Caribbean.

Has anyone heard of this or seen it sold anywhere in the TB area?

I've seen breadfruit a lot while in the Caribbean (Antigua, St Lucia especially). I have heard it's pretty starchy and tasteless and most commonly the shell is used to make bowls. Doubt they sell it much on the mainland, but maybe you can find it at a Latin American grocery. Now, if you ever see "soursop", snatch that up. Absolutely ugly fruit, but tastes as sweet as candy.

I've seen those monsters. Does anyone know of good ways to keep them from eating your plants?

I had to google soursop and you're right, it's not the prettiest looking fruit but I'd love to try it. I do alot of smoothies, with and without veggies, so I'm always looking for new flavors. I can't wait to be exposed to more types of fruits.
