Ulu Black Modern Silk


Ulu is Hawaiian for breadfruit, a popular staple in Hawaiian diet
and culture.  Native Hawaiians needed ulu to survive.  The trunk
was used to make drums, surfboards, poi boards, canoe parts, and
lumber for house and furniture construction.  The inner bark was
used as a tapa cloth.  Leaf sheaths, finely abrasive, polished
utensils, bowls, and kukui nuts used in lei-making.  The young
buds were used as medicine for the mouth and throat.  The sticky
sap became glue, caulking, or chewing gum.  And the edible fruit
nourished many Hawaiians.  Ulu may be steamed, baked, boiled,
marinated, mashed, or stir-fried.  The dark green leaves and
round balls of fruit stand out in places around the islands.
