Jamaican Fruits

One thing Jamaica has in abundance is fruits. Well this is true for any tropical island. I always love it when I visit other countries and I find the same kind of fruits. Growing up, everything that could be "juiced" was juiced. My favorite was "Mango Juice." There is nothing like fresh squeezed mango.

One interesting fruit is the "Ackee." I guess it is like a "tomato." It doesn't fit in the fruit category but it is described as a fruit.
