Description:

Salak palm (often called Snake Fruit because of the scaly skin on the fruits) is a thorny species of palm tree native to Indonesia and Malaysia. It is a very short-stemmed palm, making a cluster of short crowns, with leaves up to 5m long. The fruits grow in clusters at the base of the palm, and can be peeled by hand. There are three sections inside, with the color and texture of a peeled garlic but a taste that is anything but that! It is mostly a combination of apple and pineapple, and often tends to be a bit astringent unless very ripe. Everybody likes them!
