RIMAS or breadfruit which does not have seeds are usually propagated in three ways. One is by marcotting the branches. Another is by severing a root the size of a finger or bigger that is growing sidewards. Soon, new sprout will come out from the severed root and that is recovered when it is about a foot tall. These are rather slow methods of multiplying the breadfruit.
