Did you Know?

-------------------

  • ...that Jamaica was the only place in the world that considered the fruit of the Ackee tree edible?

    Also known as Blighia Sapida, it is the national fruit of Jamaica. Ackee was imported from West Africa, and it is believed to have arrived in Jamaica via a slave ship.

  • ...that the islands of Turks & Caicos and the Cayman Islands were dependencies of Jamaica?

    This they were until Jamaica became independent in 1962. Then they reverted to the charge of Britain. Jamaica however, still assisted in Judicial and police matters when invited.

Well, now you know!
