What local fruit is in-season in August?

In April, I purchased fresh mangoes on the street in The Gap. The limes I purchased at the grocery store were imported though.

Anyone know what local fruits (besides coconuts) are in season in August?

You should find Akees for sale at the side of the road.

Ackees, soursops, cherries, paw paws, breadfruit, bananas, mangoes and watermelon. There are others which aren't coming to mind right now.

Well, I wasn't sure what Akee was so I googled it and saw reference to the Jamaican Akee, which didn't sound like a fruit.

What is the Barbados Akee, or rather, can you describe or point me to a link that describes the Barbados Akee. The other fruits as mentioned by BGIWorldTraveller sounds very good.

Sounds like a yummy blender drink could be made with these fruits (perhaps with a dash of Extra Old) . Are these fruits available in Supercentre?
