Just had my first Janerik of the season. Massis Market, Watertown, MA. No Akidinyé yet for this bugger.
Two weeks ago it was Loz Akhdar, dipped in kosher salt, washed down with a nutty Almaza. Also from Massis.
25 years in exile, and still no Lebanon in sight on the horizon for me. Maybe this is Lebanon; my weekly trips from Andover to Watertown, and the ocean spray from Boston harbor tickling my nostrils. "Le parfum du bonheur" as Desirée Aziz called it :)

Used to have an American neighbor who had such a tree in his garden.

Over 2O years, he had it, never knew the akkis were edible. Surprise!!

My grandfather had a fig tree planted in his mountain home's back garden. Every summer he would pick the fruit and serve them up in a big ice bowl.

I never had the heart to tell him they never tasted as sweet as the ones you buy from the store.

(Not insinuating anything)

ooooooh, so here you aaare, strange fruit!! I've been searching for u!
I used to pick these when I was a child with my friends. there was a tree in a garden on my way home from school (it was like, a little public one). where I grew, it was called "biwa". But it was not popular in Egypt at all, could never figure the name.

by the way, ur blog is so nice :))

Ramzi, our akidinyas taste like heaven :) but we do have a fig tree and those figs are totally tasteless :)
