Haroun bread was a type of light brown-colored bread.[1] In 40 BBY,[3] the human pilot Rahara Wick emerged from the mess of the Gozanti-class freighter Meryx, where she had been snacking, with a haroun bread bun in her hand while waiting to be signalled for pick up by the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi.[4]

When Jinn, Queen Padmé Amidala, and the Gungan Jar Jar Binks took shelter from a sandstorm and ate dinner in the slave Shmi Skywalker's house in the city of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine[5] in 32 BBY,[6] a bowl containing a piece of haroun bread,[5] two balls of ahrisa, and a lamta[1] sat on the house's kitchen counter.[5] Around 9 ABY,[7] a diner on the desert world Lafete where the bounty hunters Boba Fett and Din Djarin met with Mandalorians Bo-Katan Kryze and Koska Reeves had haroun bread costing 5.78 listed on its menu.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Haroun bread first appeared in the 1999 prequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.[5] In the new Star Wars canon, it was first identified in the 2017 reference book Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia, which was written by Adam Bray, Tricia Barr and Cole Horton. In the book, one ball of ahrisa is erroneously labeled as haroun bread.[1]

Haroun bread originally received its name in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where it was first identified in the 1999 reference book Star Wars: Episode I The Visual Dictionary, written by David West Reynolds.[8]

ToppsDigitalLogo.png Star Wars: Card Trader (Card: Obi-Wan Kenobi - Padawan - Base Series 1) states that Kenobi was born fifty-seven years prior to the Battle of Yavin. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Yavin to 0 BBY, Kenobi must have been born in 57 BBY, which places the events of Master & Apprentice, including the appearance of haroun bread, in 40 BBY.
