Akala Berries



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.
