  sake (breadfruit)

 

Thailand

A fruit of the sake or breadfruit tree. Although smaller in size, from the outside the fruit resembles the kanun, a species belonging to the same botanical family and known in English as jackfruit (fig.).

 

Despite the fact that it is eaten as a vegetable in curries and deep-fried as a snack, it is far less popular than its relative. See also List of Thai Botanical Names.
