Abstract: Blighia sapida is a woody perennial fruit tree species native to West Africa. The fleshy arils of the ripened fruits are edible while the seeds and capsules of the fruits are used for soap making. Our ethnobotanical survey revealed that although the ackee fruit is overlooked by researchers in Ghana, the fresh ackee aril is traded in some local markets. People have different interests in using ackee and variable knowledge of its uses. Preferred bakery products from suggestions in the survey conducted were cake, chips and rock cake.
