Description

Elizabeth paints the story of the Ahakeye. This a very important story for Elizabeth that belongs to her country, Ahalpere. The ahakeye, called bush plum in English by Elizabeth, 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.
