Native to Java and Sumatra, Salak is a species of palm tree. The salak fruit, also known as snake fruit, grows in clusters at the base of the palm. The fruit has a reddish-brown scaly skin, with insides that consist three lobes which have a sweet and acidic taste. Usually eaten fresh, the snake fruit can also be pickled or candied in syrup. Salak are usually added to warm salads or stir fries.
