Akee pods should be allowed to fully ripen on the tree before picking. Prior to cooking the arils are washed and then boiled for 5 minutes, the water is discarded. The dried seeds, fruit, bark and leaves of the tree are all used in traditional medicine. Akee is a tropical evergreen tree with leathery leaves that grows to around 10m. Native to Africa it was taken to the West Indies before 1778 where it has become an integral part of the local cuisine. Akee is now the national fruit of Jamaica.

Candle Nut

Our tree is maybe 20y.o.(unsure). It is growing gangbusters due to proximity to septic line. Fruits madly - around 200/day fall - potentially hazardous due to size. Am now harvesting to prevent massive self seeding. Plan to dry for 12 months then cook.

Candle Nut

Candle nuts are used as a thickener in curries raher than for flavour. You can always use almonds instead if not a culinary purist, but my folks always insist on buying some when they come to stay!

It is said to be the best weight loss plant in the World, which i dont know if I believe. A couple is selling the seeds for $100 for a bottle. They claim to boil the seed and drink the water. No long term studies to prove it.

Candle Nut

Candle nut is becoming a bit of a weed in S/E QLD and think twice about planting out its range as it is a fast growing agressive self seeeder. I have pulled the one up that I planted in the Rainforest re-vegetation area on my property because of this.
