There is never a shortage of amazing and new fruit at the Woodstock Fruit Festival!

Jemima joined us for a little taste test, trying it for the very first time!!

If not eaten properly the Ackee can lead to vomiting, coma or even death. This is because an unripe ackee fruit contains a poison called hypoglycin, so you have to be very careful to wait until the fruit’s protective pods turn red and open naturally. Once open, the only edible portion is the yellow arilli, which surround the toxic black seeds (these are always toxic even once the fruit is ripe).
While Rane says they haven’t shipped Ackee yet due to it’s inherent dangers, you can check out and order a wide variety of other amazing tropical fruit in USA from http://MiamiFruit.org
