The ackee is not indigenous to Jamaica but has remarkable historic associations.
It was originally brought to the island from West Africa, probably via a slave ship.
It currently grows abundantly and produces massive quantities of edible fruit each year.
It is a part of Jamaica’s national dish Ackee & Salt fish.
