This unique fruit has an outer shell that looks and feels a lot like snake skin (hence the name snake fruit). Peel away it’s scales to reveal what looks like giant garlic cloves inside. The pale yellow fleshed cloves are the part you eat. The texture is crunchy and sort of dry with a hint of juiciness like an apple.
Also known as Salak , Salacca zalacca , salacca salacca
The flavor is similar to pineapple and jackfruit with hints of bitter. Inside the large cloves is typically one medium sized brown seed.
It grows on a palm with a lot of sharp spikes and needs tropical conditions to thrive.
Snake fruit is ready to eat as soon as it is picked and should be consumed quickly after you get your box.
This fruit will take you right back to the tropics from the comfort of your home!
