Ackee is an evergreen fruit which grows all over the island of Jamaica. This fruit was first introduced to Jamaica from the West coast of Africa. The Ackee tree is very recognisable with its glossy green leaves and reddish pods.


When ripe, it will open to reveal its creamy yellow flesh and black seeds. Ackee served with Salted Fish has become Jamaica's National dish.
