The famous Giant African Snail (Achatina Achatina) is of an excellent taste, and is not
only very popular in Africa, but also greatly appreciated in : China, Asia, Europe, and the USA.
Snails of this size, need up to two years to grow, and sell in Accra for 5-7 Ghc a piece ...
If they are "medium" size (one year old), they sell for 1+ Ghc a piece, in the markets ...
These African "achatina" snails are actually very cute :-)
The Giant African Snails are a great delicacy in all of Ghana, and all of West-Africa. They are being sold on markets,
on the streets, and on road-sides. But in Accra, the capital of Ghana there is even a huge special market, only for
snails. In the USA, in Florida, there were a few snails escaped, and they're a huge plaque over there now. ⇒
