Scientists developing super breadfruit in Pacific

31 March 2015

Scientists for the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) are developing a super breadfruit (Mae) that will be more productive and climate resistant. The joint research by the SPC’s Centre for Pacific Crops and Trees (CePaCT) aims to improve food security in the Pacific Islands. According to the SPC “Pacific Island governments want varieties of breadfruit that fruit all year round so that there is a continuous supply, which is vitally important for food security and also for commercial farmers and businesses based on breadfruit products.”
