A little history....

This is a breadfruit, but not just any breadfruit....


See this one has pedigree. Quite the history eh? Mutiny on the Bounty and all that jazz ultimately led to a few little trees arriving in St. Vincent.


Where they and there offspring grew up big and strong....


When a tree has a documentable history like this one its a great reminder of the importance the natural world and the first plant hunters had on a global economic level not too long ago.
