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!
Purple Akebi has a soft and crunchy consistency with a mild, sweet, and subtly fragrance flavor.
When consumed, the flesh melts into a semi-sweet liquid with notes of pear, coconut, and melon.
