Woman selling Jack Fruit
"This woman sells breadfruit, fruit de pain, which Captain Bligh first attempted to bring to the Caribbean from Polynesia on his ship the Bounty when the infamous mutiny occurred in 1789...Johnston mistakes it for jackfruit, a meaty fruit of lemony-pineapple flavour, that looks similar and is also from the mulberry family" - Dr Petrine Archer-Straw.
