Breadfruit & The True Story of Mutiny on the Bounty with Dr. Diane Ragone

May 11, 2020

You may be familiar with the famous story of the Mutiny on the Bounty, but did you know that a fruit from the mulberry family was at the heart of the conflict? In this episode, I speak with the Dr. Diane Ragone, director of the Breadfruit Institute, about a large, nutritious tropical fruit that originates in the Pacific, but has found a home across the tropics and sub-tropics. We discuss the botany, history and ethnobotany of this fascinating starchy food source.
