Fruit dish identification. Candied yellow breadfruit layers?

Hello,

I few years ago in China I had a dish that I'm still trying to figure out. I think it may have been candied? steamed yellow breadfruit in layers. I bought a breadfruit, but it was immature and nothing like the yellow fruit I'm speaking of. This fruit? looked similar to a pineapple inside, but it was sticky and peeled off in layers. I'm sure I had this around Shanghai and other places. Do you know what I'm talking about?

Here are some pictures. This looks quite similar, but the breadfruit is cut into chunks and not layered... http://www.ntbg.org/breadfruit/uses/i...

Is this it? :O).

I also found a recipe for some candied breadfruit, but I wonder if I could just get a ripe yellow (inside) breadfruit and steam it...

Here is the link to the recipe. http://starbulletin.com/97/07/30/feat... It's the third recipe on the page.

I was just looking for some sort of confirmation.

    Is it Jackfruit?

      I bought some canned Jackfruit to try to see if it was it. I don't think it was the same thing. Hmm.
