Fresh Breadfruit

  • 4

Does anyone know a place that carries breadfruit. I had it for the first time over the weekend and really enjoyed it. Preferably south of Boston. Thanks!

  1. Tropical Foods in Dudley has it. Call ahead of time to confirm which day they get their delivery though.

    1. I'm reviving this thread, as I too am on a breadfruit quest.

      Let's broaden the scope: is there ANYWHERE around Boston that we know sells it?

        I don't see it on the current wholesale produce reports for the Boston area. So anyone carrying it would be using a jobber out of NYC. There are specialty markets which get regular deliveries directly from NY. A southeast asian market or Tropical Foods as Matt H mentioned would be good bets. I would bet you could find it around Lynn, but unless galangatron can report seeing it that isn't much help. I have bought it from La Sultana in Somerville, the old Super 88, and believe that I have even seen it at Market Basket in the past but wouldn't expect any of those to have it right now if its not being distributed out of Chelsea/Everett.

          Good advice. Tropical had it last week. Didnt pick up any personally so cant vouch for the quality, but they had it in stock. Give them a call, they are typically pretty helpful in the produce department.
