Akala Berries look like large raspberries.
They are red to very dark red to purple, and sweet and juicy.
Akala Berries grow on a thornless shrub that grows up to 6 feet (2 metres) tall, after the bush has produced light-purple blossoms.
The berries must be very ripe before you pick them or they will be bitter and tart.
Akala Berries can be eaten out of hand or used in making jams or pies.
Akala Berries are native to Hawaii, US.
Another species, Rubus macraei, is also called "akala."
