How is breadfruit benefiting our local community through new economic opportunities.
- Breadfruit is currently being understood as a super food. There is untapped potential for health benefits to humans, economic opportunities, and environmentally friendly growing through agroforestry.
- A breadfruit tree consumes two tons of carbon in it's lifetime and emits a ton of oxygen. St. Croix is a perfect environment.
- Breadfruit trees and products can be a substantial agriculture export for the USVI, as well as providing the territory with food security.
In Hawaiian culture, breadfruit is called 'ulu. In Hawaiian lore, the god Ku transformed himself into a 'ulu tree to feed his family and spread the fruit trees through out the Hawaiian Islands.
