Akee, Ackee meaning in Cooking Dictionary

Tropical fresh fruit, native to Africa, commonly consumed in Jamaica with salt cod. The cherry-size fruit, somewhat oval fit, has actually a flavor comparable to red grapes, and seems like scrambled eggs when prepared. Specific parts of the fresh fruit are toxic when underripe therefore it is vital that you determine the phase of maturity before by using this fruit, but canned akee is safe. Also known as genipa, genip, ginup, honeyberry, limoncillo, Spanish lime and mamoncillo.
