So I just came back from Grand Cayman and I stumbled upon an ackee. I had no idea what it was so I took a picture of it and showed a girl at the hotel. she said it was an ackee and it is used in the Jamaican national dish, salt codfish. I tried to get more information from her but she didn't know too much about it. I attached the wikipedia article (cuz I'm too lazy to upload one). I had to look at the fruits several times, they looked and felt like plastic fruit, very strange. Anyways the girl at the hotel said that it was not ripe, and that it has to open up before it is ready. Again I tried to get more information and failed. I asked if it was treated like a breadfruit (I think she didn't know what a breadfruit was). The wikipedia article shows both the state I saw and the open ripe version. I didn't notice any aroma around the tree.
Anyone familiar with these and willing to share some insight?
