The Purple Akebi Fruit
Akebi is a mysterious and beautiful fruit native to the north of Japan and has only been cultivated and available in stores only in recent decades. The translucent white flesh inside, filled with countless white capped shiny black seeds is eaten as fruit. Unbeknownst to many, the purple pod can be cooked and eaten as well, but like a vegetable, not a fruit! Now that is a versatile fruit!

It is a rare, perennial, woody plant, about 6m high, about 10-30 cm in diameter. The tree has many branches and has tops pointing upwards. Small white flowers, growing on the stem.
The fruit is about the same size as a plum, and grows densely on the trunk and branches. The fruit is initially green, then pink, and when ripe, it turns purple. The fruit has a grape taste, a lot of water and can be eaten immediately after picking. In addition, the plant is also used to make jam or to ferment to make wine. The fruit cannot be used to cure asthma and diarrhea. On average, it takes 8-9 years for a new tree to bear fruit, the older the tree, the more fruit it will give.

The fruit is large—about the size of a grapefruit, oval-shaped, and green. Its scaly skin texture makes it somewhat resemble an artichoke. Inside, the flesh is soft, white, and creamy, with several dark brown seeds that must be removed—these seeds are toxic when crushed.
