My breadfruit is already matured. I can tell it by looking at the colour of its skin. It is slightly yellowish compared to the bright green of the immature one.
But, it is way up there, on the highest branch. I have to use the ladder and a pole to bring it down. With a slight push there it is, thumping down on the ground..
It was light and a bit soft to the touch.
I cut in into two longitudinal halves and begin to skin it. Then I slice it into a few 1-cm thick wedges and soak them into salt water.
My wife then deep fries the wedges till golden brown and crispy.
They make wonderful snack. As good, or even better tasting than the deep-fried yam or sweet potatoes.
