It's a pandanus sp., but it's not breadfruit! Breadfruit has quite different leaves, and the fruit grows from the trunk or big branches. The fruit does look superficially like the picture, though. According to your wiki link, rabid old goat, screwpine is correct.

No. It's not a language issue. Breadfruit is Artocarpus altilis. Pandanus is used for multiple species in the genus Pandanus.

And anyway it wouldn't make any sense to refer to the Pandanus fruit as "breadfruit" since it's not edible.

whatever. you i can call it what you like, i am still calling it breadfruit.biggrin.png

In your defence I guess you're an Aussie possibly from Queensland where this is a common sight on beaches.

Rightly or wrongly the locals call this fruit breadfruit as you say.
