[Akebi] AKEBI

Akebi is a vine deciduous shrub that bears oval fruits in the fall. When it’s time to eat, the fruit tears and you can see the seeds inside. We eat the white pulp inside, but not the seeds. Since there are very few edible parts, it has long been popular as a great snack for children playing in the mountains. The taste has a refreshing sweetness.

In another region of Japan, Yamagata Prefecture in the Tohoku region, there is a region where children eat the fruits inside as snacks and cook them without discarding the outer skin.
