A branch of the bread fruit tree with fruit
The second of two such breadfruit engravings published in John Hawkesworth's 'Voyages' (an account of the journeys by Captain Cook, Vice Admiral John Byron, and Joseph Banks published on behalf of the Admirality in 1773). The other print is PAJ2419 (uncoloured). Breadfruit is a starchy fruit that has a potato-like flavour when cooked , similar to bread, and is high in carbohydrates and protein. Breadfruit was seen as a highly productive food and was later transported to the Caribbean as a cheap, high-energy food source for slaves.
