It is Brossimum alicastrum , here in Jalisco Mexico , we call it Capomo .
HI, in Colima, México call this plant mojo or ramon fruit
Is this used to grind to make flour and subsequently bread?
Yes. I should have more written info on the post, but wikipedia has a good writeup.
Cheers for that 🙂
We just returned from Guatemala, visiting Tikal, Lake Atitlan and Antigua. I brought back some Ramon flour, from the Breadnut of the Breadnut tree there. I was wondering if you had a source of recipes so that I could make something with it. I tasted the wonderful Champurradas sesame sugar cookies there and wondered if these might incorporate that flour. Or, is there another bread besides tortillas that could be made from it?
I think you have a wonderful site and look forward to learning more from your many plant pictures and descriptions. 🙂
