KNOW YOUR ‘ULU

ʻUlu Maturity Stages

Breadfruit can be eaten at every development stage. As the fruit grows, each stage yields a different taste and texture profile that can be used for specific culinary purposes.


Baby – Young ‘ulu has a taste and texture similar to artichoke hearts and is ideal for pickling, marinating, or used like a firm vegetable in salads and stir-fries.

Mature – Larger but nearly as firm as baby ‘ulu, Mature fruit has a potato-like consistency and can be steamed, boiled, fried, baked, or cooked the traditional way: roasted directly in a fire or imu!

Ripe – As ‘ulu ripens it becomes soft and sweet and can be eaten raw or used in desserts and baked goods. Ripe ‘ulu has hints of sweet potato, banana, and pineapple flavors.

Baker's Ripe – ‘Ulu at its ripest. The super soft, sweet, and fragrant fruit is used in desserts, baked goods, breads, batters, ice cream, smoothies, sauces, and more.
