Jamaican national fruit, flowers and plant
Well, one of the biggest attractions when it comes to Jamaica is its food.
Jamaicans are proud of their national fruit, the ackee
which was brought from Africa, it is said on slave ships. It has become a national ingredient.
Ackee and saltfish, for example, is served for breakfast. Tourists want to taste it and it is vital to know that unopened, the fruit is poisonous. When the heat of the sun dries its not drinkable juices, the fruit itself can be eaten safely. Surprisingly, its taste and texture is similar to scrambled eggs!
If you choose Jamaica for your summer destination, make sure you admire the national flower
, a lavender-blue flower which blossoms at the beginning of the spring months or early summer. The tree of life, which is its name, is especially growing in dry woodlands, on the Northern and Southern Jamaican Coasts.
In the interior of the island grows the national tree
, the blue mahoe, which reaches height of up to 20 m. Its flowers change the color from yellow to orange red and crimson in the end.
