In this week’s SDSAB column, the exploits of Captain Bligh of HMS Bounty fame are detailed. I noted that, following the mutiny, Bligh made a second voyage to Polynesia which successfully brought breadfruit to Blighty.
What happened to the breadfruit? Will it even grow in the British Isles? Why not take it to British colonies in the Caribbean? Did King George just eat the breadfruit as a snack?
