Product information

Grade 'A' Ackee The Ackee is the true fruit of Jamaica. This unique fruit is, to the surprise of many, eaten as a vegetable: in vol-au-vents, with rice, in quiches and most often in one of Jamaica's signature dishes - Ackee and Saltfish. The Ackee is found on a medium size tree that bears magnificent red and yellow pear shaped fruits. When ripe the pod naturally bursts open into three sections to expose three shiny black seeds, each attached to a yellow edible aril. It is this aril that is consumed after the seed has been removed. To a real Jamaican there is no substitute for the taste of Ackee, the national fruit of Jamaica - it is the true taste of home.

Authentic Jamaican delicacy

This was softer than it would normaaly be.Due to its natural tenderness ackee should be just heated through after adding it to your already cooked and seadoned ingredients such as onions, garlic, salted cod, etc. It's also very nice as a veg side dish, added to softened and season onions, garlic, chopped free tomato, etc. Coming from a British born Jamaican who has embraced Jamaican culinary skills and cooking.

Am really disappointed with this product. Ackee is normally a quite firm fruit. I found the majority of these fruits in the tin were very mushy. Won't try these again. Yuk
