Related to the lychee and a native of tropical West Africa, ackee was imported to Jamaica in the 1700s and made a big impression; ackee and saltfish is Jamaicas national dish. Ackee pods ripen on the tree before picking, and to cook the fruit, people remove the soft, spongy whiteyellow flesh before boiling it.
