I have no idea, but I am curious to hear the answer and find out what you do with it Larry.

Pacanis was right !!!
It is a breadfruit. The link showed one that was earlier in development so the outer skin looked a slightly different color and texture, but I came across a more mature one at this site

Google Image Result for http://www.dkimages.com/discover/previews/869/50027514.JPG

and that looks just like the one I have ( mine is a little more green)

All parts of the tree yield latex, a milky juice, which is used for boat caulking. I don't know if I like the sound of that in my mouth!.
You ought to buy an extra one to try this, below, and then post in a year or 20. LOL! Just kidding.
preservation is an issue. One traditional preservation technique is to bury peeled and washed fruits in a leaf-lined pit where they ferment over several weeks and produce a sour, sticky paste. So stored, the product may last a year or more, and some pits are reported to have produced edible contents more than 20 years later
It even has it's own cookbook: So, if you can roast, or bake, or boil, have you decided which way you're going to try it? I would think boiled would bring out the potato taste mentioned. Roasted or baked might take like bread.
Curious, so keep us posted, okay?
Thanks for the post, Larry.

Sounds like you need to make a trip to the Aussie place, Larry.
Or at least get their bi-annual newsletter.

I'll stand in for MexicoKaren. She's been busy getting her paintings ready for the Bucerias Art Walk on Thursday. I can tell you what the fruit is in Quicksliver's photo. It's called a tuna here in Mexico. It's a mild sweet fruit with lots of seeds that you don't spit out. I first tried it just a month ago and didn't know what to do with the seeds until someone said "Just swallow them"! Now I'll be looking to see if they have breadfruit here. I've never tasted one. Tell us how it is, Larry!
