I found this fruit on a breadfruit tree in Temwaiku. It’s still young and has to stay up here for several more weeks before it becomes ripe to be harvested. It’s the breadfruit species that hasn’t got seeds.
It was close to the ground so I didn’t have problems shooting it – even without a tripod.
I wanted the fruit to stand out, therefore I manually blurred the surroundings with the help of the photo software.
The ones below are on that same tree. As we see, healthy breadfruit trees, like this one, are able to shoot up to 4 fruits out of its branches during their bearing period. 1 or 2 may fall off before they become ripe otherwise all survive the harvest season.
About 9 weeks after the above photos were captured, the fruits have now become ripe and have to be dropped from the tree. The image you see below is one of those ripe breadfruits from that tree.
Someone held the breadfruit in his hand as I tried to get a nice clear shot of it. The size is amazing! It goes to almost 30 cm between its two ends and about 15 cm in diameter. I don’t have a scale to weigh it so we could not state how heavy it is. Thus, as I tried to get a good focus, the person holding the fruit complained saying it was heavy and I needed to be quick with the shooting.
As with the image below, the breadfruit is ready to go into the pot. The skin has been removed and the fruit cut up into several small pieces. Breadfruit is delicious!

When people see me, they may feel odd about me. Some may consider me as a useless lonely log (tree trunk) stuck at this shallow muddy part of Ambo – Taborio lagoon. Others may think that I shouldn’t be here.
Despite such feelings, I know that I am worth enough for birds, fish and other small sea creatures. Apart from providing shelter, shade and food to the creatures that come and live on or around me, birds also use me much like their fishing canoe during high tides. The fact is: ‘I am useful, have friends and of course, attractive!’.
This photo is just about a day old as I took it yesterday morning (5/12/17) at around 7am. Luckily, the security allowed me to take few photos of this building. It is USP Kiribati Campus at Teaoraereke Tarawa. It’s among the three storey buildings to have been built on the island. I took the shot from this location so that the whole building is visible. For better stableness, the tripod was used and timing was also set.
