Description

Motorbike paints the story of the Ahakeye. This a very important story for Motorbike that belongs to his country, Ahalpere. The ahakeye, called bush plum in English by Motorbike, is also known as the native currant or citrus. This shrub produces small white flowers, deep green citrus-like leaves and the ahakeye, which are black when ripe and very small. This fruit is favoured for its sweet taste and can be reconstituted in water if dry.
