Help with Breadfruit Research

Breadfruit

On the south shore of Kauaʻi, a living collection of breadfruit grows in the National Tropical Botanical Garden’s McBryde Garden—over 25 varieties of this Pacific region staple food.

Volunteering with NTBG’s Breadfruit Institute means documenting the fruits, their sizes, presence of flowers, and signs of disease or rot, which if not caught early can spread quickly throughout the entire forest. By helping researchers better understand this important crop, you’ll be enhancing its value for food and reforestation in tropical regions around the world.
