I was thinking of our dear VT friend from Israel when I was adding these photos of Kerala Fruits.
Bread Fruit Tree or Arbol de Pan is originally from Tahiti and was brought over to Jamaica and other islands by Captain Bligh of Mutiny Fame. But what family does JackFruit belong to? is it indigenous to Kerala? like Guapin in Cuba which looks like Jackfruit? and also Durian, which family does that fruit belong to, which is ubiquitous in Malaysia?

If you have answers to these questions, about the origins of Jack Fruit, Guapin and Durian, please let me know.. Thank You. Teremah Kaseh, Gracias y Nanri..
