Ackee is a tropical fruit that belongs to the Sapindaceae family. It is native to West Africa and is the national fruit of Jamaica. The tree can grow up to 30 feet tall and has glossy, dark green leaves. The fruit is a large, pear-shaped pod that is green when unripe and turns yellow or red when ripe. The fruit splits open naturally when it is fully ripe, revealing three large, shiny black seeds surrounded by a creamy, edible flesh that is rich in flavor and texture. The flesh is usually eaten as a vegetable, usually with saltfish (salted cod) which is a traditional Jamaican dish called "Ackee and Saltfish". However, it is important to note that the unripe fruit and the seeds are toxic and should not be consumed. The fruit should only be used when it is fully ripe and the seeds are removed before cooking
