WHAT IS THAT?
Remember that Puerto Rico is a colony of the mighty United States.
All of the celebration dates have, by cefault, been adopted and embraced by many Puerto Ricans.
Halloween is no exception.
Puerto Rican kids look forward the costumes and the ‘trick or treating’.
The one thing that I didn’t do as a child was carve a pumpkin.
And, proud to say, that I did last year.
It was daunting but then I got the hang of it.
Not that I want to do it again.
I have always written about Puerto Rican creativity.
Well, this might as well be another example.
The pumpkin has been replaced by a breadfruit!
Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis) is a species of flowering tree in the mulberry and Jackfruit family (Moraceae) originating in the South Pacific and that was eventually spread to the rest of Oceania.
British and French navigators introduced a few Polynesian seedless varieties to Caribbean islands during the late 18th century, and today it is grown in some 90 countries throughout South and Southeast Asia, the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean, Central America and Africa.
Its name is derived from the texture of the moderately ripe fruit when cooked, similar to freshly baked bread; it has a potato-like flavor.
