Salak Fruit 蛇皮果

Salak Fruit 蛇皮果

The salak fruit or snake fruit, due to the reddish-brown snake-like scaly skin, is native to equatorial South-East Asia. The tree resembles an oil palm tree but much shorter and the fruits come in bunches and is found at the base of the tree. Each fruit has 3 lobes and the texture of the flesh is garlic-like. And the taste is sweet and a little acidic. So how do you get rid of the hard scaly skin? Simple, just pinch the tip of the fruit and break it and start peeling.
