Ackee

Product Details

Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica and is used in many culinary dishes. The ackee tree grows to 9.1 metres high and matures in 3-4 years. Its majestic figure with brightly coloured fruits can add aesthetics to any landscape. Fruits can be seen from January- March and from October- November. It is recommended to only consume this fruit when it has ripened since ingestion of unripe Ackee fruit may result in illness.When ripe, these fruits burst into sections revealing shiny black round seeds on top of a yellow aril which is partially edible. It is primarily recognized for its combination with salt fish known as ‘ackee and salt fish’.
