I know they sell them in QLD....my niece is married to a Jamaican and they bought me down a plant from there....be careful you only eat the yellow bits in the flowers the rest of it can be toxic.My plant died in the first Winter but we have frosts.I asked her what they taste like and she said it tastes like scrambled egg.They mostly cook it up with salt fish.....good luck I have to make do with the scrambled egg!

Hello Melissa

Thanking you sooo much for your reply!!.I am Jamaican and have been living in OZ for more than 20 years. I now live in WA. I would dearly love to purchase an ackee tree. It would be the pride of my edible garden. Do contact me on akera15@bigpond.net.au if you can help me. I wait eagerly to hear from you.

I think you are right about not being able to get them into australia. I had someone from Australia buy some seeds from me recently and as of this morning the seeds have been sitting in customs for over a week. Actually it is originally from West Africa but was brought to Jamaica in the late 18th century. It is very popular in Jamaica.

Hi Orville, I was the one who purchased seeds from Australia. Yes Australian Quarantine have notified me that they are "unidentified" and will be destroyed. I researched this thoroughly to ensure we could get them through however if they are not marked "Blighia Sapida" on the outside of the packaging,seeds are clean and free of debris, packaging must be new and weigh less than 100 grams. I am still waiting for customs to return my call. Will keep trying.

Hi terry i followed your instructions to the tee. The package weight 3 ounces which is about 80 grams. The name of the item was on the shipping label and it was also on a enclosed envelope attached to the package. Maybe you can ask them what else they want and we can take it from there.

Hi terry sorry it didn't work. I don't understand what they mean by it was unidentified. It was marked on the outside of the envelope and on the inside. However, i would appreciate if you could maybe get some more information from them and let me know. What it takes to get a package threw customs. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Orville, thanks for your concern. I rang Australian Quarantine today and they claim it was not marked. However, they instructed me to email them the common name and scientific name. If OK they will deliver them to me. I did search our AQIS rules on Ackee before ordering and their website tells me its OK. Fingers Crossed !!

Thanks for the offer Orville, however its now up to the AQIS to clear the seeds. "Should" be OK. ICON is the Australian Customs clearance system. go to http://www.aqis.gov.au/icon32/asp/homecontent.asp to read all about it.

Hey...if it all works more Australians can access Ackee seeds

If you have someone who either lives in Cairns or on holiday there you can ask them to collect seeds on the ground of the tree (in the car park along Mc Cleod street near corner of Florence street city ) I saw the tree 1 month ago which had too many ripe fruits at the time.

I think you can order a tree from Limberlost nursery in Freshwater Cairns they may have some.

Good luck.

Hi Orville, good news the Ackee seeds were cleared and released to my home. I note you clearly had Blighia Sapida on the outside of the package (maybe the also required the common name??)They are very dry (Shrivelled), do you think they will still germinate. Can you (or anyone on this forum) please give tips for germination. thank you

Hi John,
I have never tried soursop because it is too tropical for Melbourne. I did try jackfruit and ambarella but they did not survive after 3 years in pots and they were getting smaller every year. I did cover the soil in winter too. And also I bought some mature unripe soursop fruits and they turned brown after few days and the next day in the bin because the temperature was not hot enough for the fruit to ripe.
You can make soursop preserve by draining the meat and cook with lots of sugar like jam until thicken and wrap in clear plastic paper. You can find them in Vietnamese shop during chinese new year time. Lots of work.

Hi Terry,
I dont believe in getting fancy. I just plant them right into a good quality potting soil and keep the soil moist not soggy. That usually does the trick.I just burry them deep enought to be coverd by the soil. However, I dont think even that is necessary as the ackee seeds will sprout just laying on the ground.

If those dont work I will send you some fresh ones in August, that is the time the ackee bears around here. This time i will make sure the lable is filled out big enough that even a blind person can read it.

Basically the ackee fruit is safe to eat when it opens naturally. The edible part is the cream colored meet in the middle. remove the seed and the pink membranes from the inside of the meat. The meat is safe to eat. If you need more information i can be contacted at information@ackee-tree.com
You might also find my website http://www.ackee-tree.com of interest.

Ackee trees are growing in Nth QLD and if your lucky you can get some seedlings. I have 3 trees growing. They take years to bear fruit. We are a Jamaican family and love Ackee and Saltfish for breakfast. Pity it only happens when someone goes overseas.

I have a couple of tins which I have brought back from Jamaica, and will be having some this evening ackee and salt fish that is... How wicked of me to tease.

I had a problem in finding salt fish, but managed to find some after driving around Brisbane for 3 hours!! I bought it from an importer, I also asked him if he could order some Ackee (tin). He asked for me to bring in the label and he will order the Ackee.

I have heard that the ackee tree is growing in Cains, but I have been searching the net, but have been unable to find. I would love to get my own ackee tree! Remember here in Australia they have another name for the Ackee tree.

Hi Mike,

You can buy Saltfish in Woolloongabba, Balaclava St. There is a wholesale shop they import products and sell to the public.

They have the dried saltfish and also the wet.

Off to Cairns for x-mas so will be going to Old Smithfield Road for my ackee tree.

Hi Anne, All,

I found saltfish at Centenary Seafoods which is next to the woolworths in Mount Ommaney shopping Centre they call it by the Itallian / Portugese name "bacalau". PS When you are in Cairns, look out for Breadfruit also I know they grow them up there.

I checked out the link from Sydney, but there rather expensive. Think I'd rather grow my own stuff. Hope to be back in JA next year sometime.. Can't wait for some roast breadfruit with butter and saltfish. Only have one tin of ackee left.

OK, just got off the phone from Limberlost nursery, told them about this forum. They sent me a price list of all their products. They also have soursop, lemon gras and breadfruit. All I need to know now is where can I buy some yam? If anyone out there knows, please post.

Thanks.

Hi Mike,

Just got back from Cairns, had a fab time. Someone mentioned on here about an ackee tree in a car park, well I drove around where they said and didn't find a thing. However, on the day we were leaving I found an ackee tree, which had ackee, but they were not open except for one!! So I ended up with one peg of ackee.. lol, but at least I have a seed! I also bought ackee, sour sop, breadfruit trees. I also managed to see a breadfruit tree. Just got off the phone to my grandmother in Jamaica, telling her about the trees, she knows how I love my ackee and saltfish. All I need know is my yam!

Not too sure if the breadfruit will fruit in Brisbane.

When planting the trees it's best to plant them North facing.

Do you know if you can buy breadfruit in Brisbane?

Trying to get a contact for someone to supply me with some ackee, will keep you posted.

Hi Anne and Shona,

First my apologies for the delays in replying. The place I have found plantain on a regular basis and Breadfruit on rare occasion about this time of year is "Fabulous Fruit" in the North Lakes Westfield The link with details is here: http://westfield.com.au/northlakes/ourstores/details/fabulous-fruit-18456.html

I think they told me that the Breadfruit comes in from Cairns and you have to check with them to see when it's in. I think it was last year or the year before that I got one.

Also Anne, I am of Jamaican Heritage but Was born in the UK although I reckon My patwa will pass for de Real Ting :-)

Also I have not found any Yellow Yam here In Australia but a good substitute for white Yam is Tarro which is available at most ethnic food stores (also at Fabulous Fruit) we use it when we cook Jamaican Beef Soup.

Happy New Year to you all.

PLANTAIN PHOTO :This is a photo of a Plantain growing in sydney.
ORVILLE(and Anne): "...4 peg akee" - do you mean a 4 pod/quad pod akee fruit?
SHONA : Are you looking for frozen breadfruit for cooking?
ANNE : Yeah,it is the pacific islanders stores ( or even Indian stores?) that have the frozen breadfruit.
ANNE : Banana plants are not trees.They are actually herbs,or just call them banana plants.

I think it is the cooking banana type of plantain that was desired .. Nackyard bananas has a few types , Bluggoe and Pisang Ceylon , I have both now , just have to wait about a year or so for fruit .
Plantains are still good eating if left to mature fully .

Wow.. So many posts since the 29th Dec, things are looking up.

Mike thanks for sharing. I was also born in London, with one of my parent being Jamaican. Before I came to Australia I use to live in Kingston, I lived their for 4 years. Fi mi patwa nah so bad! Funny I was thinking once my ackee trees start to fruit (many years) it will be a sin to see the fruit spoil as I'm sure I won't be able to manage 3 trees! Maybe I will suppy someone..

RolFlor - In Jamaica what you are calling pod we call a peg. Never heard it being called anything else but ackee peg, but hey, have learnt something new and that Banana trees are not trees.

Happy new year to you all.

Hi Chira,

The botanical name for Ackee is Blighia Sapida. When asking the nursery for the tree ask bythe botanical name.

Went to the location you showed, but no ackee tree. However I did find one in Marshall St, which is in Machan Beach. Go to the end of Marshall St and you will see a childrens Park, right opposite you will see an ackee tree. It had plenty of Ackee on it, wont be ready for another week or 2.

Hi Anne and Mike

Below is a picture of one of my Ackees purchased from Limberlost, last winter really stopped it however now coming along fine. Also a picture of my Jamaican Scotch Bonnets. Growing them for my jerk sauce. I am not Jamaican (Aussie) however I have two close friends from UK with Jamaican parents here in Sydney. I visited JA last year and can't wait to go back. I have found fresh plaintain here

Jai's Island

180 Woodburn Rd
Berala, NSW 2141
(02) 9643 9252


Looks like we might have an Ackee co-operative happening in a few years??

I am trying to find the softdrink TING for my kids who loved it.

RESPECT.

Mike: Thanks for replying to my question. North Lakes is quite far from where I am, however next time I'm over that side of Brisbane I'll try there for the plantain and breadfruit.

RolFlor: I want to roast the breadfruit. I've never had frozen breadfruit before. Can you only get it frozen here in Australia? Is it as good as fresh breadfruit?

Kirsty: Do you have a menu for your cafe online or one that you could email me? I've been interested in going there for a while but I'd like to see what you have on the menu.

Hi All, I'm back have been quiet for a while, but it's time to get a few replies in.

Anne No probs, when we share we all benefit when we keep evrything to ourselves we stagnate!! That said, I want to know who snapped up all of the Breadfriut that was at Northlakes 2 weeks ago?!!! :-)

Terry, Good to hear from you me Bredrin & Thnks for your info & reminding me of the JA Vibe.

Kirsty, Nice to hear from you too I spoke to Jimmy a while back I think he will remember, I'll pay y'all a visit soon.

Shona, Just remember that the Plantain is there anytime, but the Breadfruit is very rare there unfortunately.

Hi Terry nice size tree looks like you did everything right in planting it. I presume when it gets bigger you plan to cut down all those palms. A ackee tree needs a minimum of 25 feet clearance on all sides. Its a big one.

Hi Terry

It takes about four or five years before you see the first few ackees. At Approximately seven years you should geta good crop.

Hi Mike,

I have now moved back to Kingston Jamaica.. have been here a week now. I was down on the gold coast just before I left, but didn't manage to pop in on Kirsty and Jimmy. I planted one of the ackee trees in the garden and the other 2 I gave to a Jamaican, who lives in Oxley, Brisbane.. He was the first one to tell me about ackee in Cairns.

Was at the botanical garden here in the city of Santo Domingo, and took a couple of pictures of the Akee trees here, the are huge and full of pods. I even ate a couple. the vast majority of the locals have no idea what these are, those that do, call them "brains" I guess because of the white spongy part that you eat inside them, ( remember to only eat when they pop open by themselves and only eat the spongy white thingy above the seed ) the closest I could come to what they taste like, would be raw almonds, but with a spongy type texture. in picture 2 you can see how big these trees can get and how many pods they can have!!

Hi everyone. I have just (luckily) stumbled upon this brilliant site - have spent a happy half hour reading all your comments. I've been to Jamaica twice ..... love it! .... need to go again!. I had three little ackee trees growing but someone (!!!) who was trusted to water them when I was away once failed to do so and they died. I was heartbroken. NEED MORE SEEDS OR TREES - am starting my hunt today!

Hi everyone, we have just found this site, quite amazing really because we have been desperately searching for the west indian foods, like ackee, saltfish, plaintain and jerk seasoning. Stan's parents are from Dominica and he was born in UK, now lives in northern NSW. I (Lou) am an aussie girl. He has been teaching me how to cook jamacian style - airee!! We found jerk seasoning in Coffs Harbour in the Palm Centre mall, spice shop. Really would love to get some tinned ackee and saltfish. Found some salt fish in Coffs too, but it was $32/ kg. Do you know if we can get it sent from UK?? Stan is keen to met up with some west indian poms and anyone who love ackee and saltfish, etc. He felt quite isolated from his family and culture when he came here 6 years ago.

Wow sooo this is where all the Jamaicans are hiding. We have opened a Jamaican restaurant on the gold coast that specializes in Jerk Chicken but we have a special night that we introduce other dishes like Curry Goat, Escoveitch Fish, Curry Veg and more dishes coming soon.

It has been going really well, we are converting alot of Australia's to Caribbean food. People are eating Festival and Rice n Peas instead of chips!

On top of all this we are now distributions of Jamaica Joe, Pickapeppa, Walkerswood and Busha Browne's sauces and condiments.

These are all available for sale on our website.

www.jamroc.com.au

If there is a demand we can also supply, salt fish, plantain, callaloo, cerasse and other Jamaican spices (pimento etc)

We are in the process of getting in canned ackee, scotch bonnets and grace curry powder.

If you are interested please check out the website http://www.jamroc.com.au or facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Gold-Coast-Australia/JAMROC-Jamaican-Jerk-Chicken/254261083279

and contact us info@jamroc.com.au

Jen says...
Hi Orville,
I have a lovely ackee tree that my mom planted over 30 years ago and I got some of the most beautiful "yellow gold" ackees (as I call them!!), but now I find that the leaves are dropping at an alarming rate from since early this year (2010). There are some new leaves out, but that tree never shed so many leaves - and is still shedding! I can rake up a wheelbarrow full EVERY DAY - now that is not normal.
I have recently put some Begonias, Allamandas and Sage flowers around the roots to make a garden and because of the long drought we are having, I have to water every day.
Are the roots receiving too much water now? Is the tree too old now? (it bore a lot last year, as usual)Are the flowers harming the roots? Please help me as I just don't want to lose the tree - it's the only tree I have left that my mom planted as she passed away the year BEFORE it bore fruit, so you can see how special that tree is to me.
Thanks.

I'm from Jamaica and now call Melbourne home. We used to have a few ackee trees on our property in Jamaica. The plant grows readily from seed, is very quick growing and can bear fruit in 3 years in the right environment. Have been told that there are ackee trees growing in the Darwin botanical gardens, so that could be one source of seed. Not sure what variety it is thought. In terms of varieties, there are two: 'Butter' and 'Cheese'. They are named for the texture of the fruit

There is a very young tree in the Cooktown Botanic Gardens, maybe you could ask them where they got that plant from?

There is an African website which appears to have the seed for sale

www.okapigarden.com/pricelist.html

It is listed under Blighia sapida

Of course the akee is originally from Africa. They are also listed on the Aqis permitted list for import to Australia

Apparently there is a tree at or near 22 Marshall St, Machlan's Beach (according to an earlier post). Is there any chance you could check it out? I'd be pleased if you could put me on your mailing list. Thanks

I dont have a car, so I wouldnt be able to check it out on the beach. Someone mentioned an Ackee tree in the CBD, a parking lot? I live in the CBD so if anyone can confirm the address I can check it out for sure...

Hi Laisla

There is a tree in the carpark at Mc cleod street Cairns near the Corner of Mulgrave road/florence Street, not far from Crazy Clark big store. I saw lots of fruits in December so I am not sure if there are some now. The tree is about 2.5 meter tall.
Good luck.

Hi Laisla,

The tree is in the carpark (in the middle of the road that divided the road into 2 lanes). I checked google and found it is opposite TNQ Rental/ Public accounting /City terraces place. I forgot to tell you that the Mccleod street where the arkee is located is between Minnie Street and Florence street.

Hello people
yes I have found the tree! It isnt huge and looks like it is a bit of a spreader so has been pruned a bit..there are no fruits on the tree: (. I picked leaf; they feel quite leathery. Does anyone know if they can be grown from cuttings? And if they are fast growing?

ive got a tree, in a pot
im in townsville

its never looked stressed
id really like to find somewhere to put it

i will approach the botanical garden and secure it a site.

what would be absolutely awesome is if someone can bring back a couple bags of seed from jamaica or both 'butter' and 'cheese'

AQIS are generally easy to deal with
(note; AQIS is NOT Customs)
occassionally you get a live one though and you have to politley contend the decision to take your seeds.
basically you makes surethey get lodged properly and not destroyed, and then you speak to someone senior officially when you get home

all times ive done this properly i have had my seeds returned

unfortunatley when ive shipped many seeds from O/s back here they arrive mouldy and so get rejected
the best best way is in handluggage safe and cosy and super quick

if theres special seeds you want from your homeland, you can speak to me at reville1@gmail.com and if its legal ill coach you in how to import properly
for just a tiny cut of the loot :D

if you live in Oz getting non-oz species in is nigh-on impossible. Don't forget they brought in sheep and they ruined the top soil. Then they brought in the cane toad and it is destroying a whole ecological system. They are wary of everything foreign!!!
PS just found this website - so exciting..

live in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. Very hot and humid. Do you think Ackees would grow here? Do miss them so. Breadruit? Such a wonderful cheap food. Should have thought Cambodia would be perfect for growing.

oh man that's beatiful(the photo of ackee). I live in Cambodia. Can I get seeds? Do you think they would cope with humidity? Tried toms in Cooktown Queensland once.
They shot up, fruited and immediately contracted black spot from the humidity.

I have never grown ackee but I find plants to be very much alike in make-up, like stray dogs. A malnourished dog, plant or seed will respond with such gratitude and love when encountering a little kindness and spring into a new lease of life. The health of the plants does vary, however. Whatever the seed, I line the compartments of a large ice tray with crushed, wet toilet paper, add seeds, cover with wet, crushed toilet paper and leave in warm, dark place. Keep paper moist at all times! Transfer to nice compost when good, sturdy sprouts occur. Sorry, preaching to the converted I know.

Hi Everyone - have happily read through all your posts - I have followed a number of leads to obtaining some canned ackee in Australia. Only real lead was very expensive and in NSW. Anybody know if its available in QLD? My folks grew ackee in the NT and I had a few good yellow heart breadfruit growing before we left. My folks are Jamaican and live in QLD now too - so I'd love to get hold of some - it would be the best birthday present for either of them!!
Cheers

HI Carol, I have an ackee tree in my yard(it is bearing quite a lot right now and the pods are just about opening). I just can't wait to feast on them with some breadfruit! There are also small plants and seeds nearby, but I don't know how you would be able to get them. The customs people are very strict about plants, etc.

If you want to make Ackee and Saltfish you can always use tin Ackee and it turns out great every time. We import Linstead Market which is considered as the best tin ackee available.
