  • Profile picture of HURIMOZ who took this action.

    HURIMOZ commented on an older version of Introduction:

    To complement the description but from a cultural perspective, we may add that breadfruit sap was widely used in Polynesia as a caulking material in canoe building. It was mixed with coir to caulk the hulls of wooden canoes. Polynesian linguistic variants to name breadfruit include Mei, Mai, Maiore, 'uru, 'ulu, kuru, guru and gulu.
