It’s the beautiful skin of a snake fruit, known locally as salak. Peeled, the sweet fruit slightly resembles a large piece of garlic. And if you happen to eat the fruit when it’s not fully ripe, your mouth will respond by uncontrollably tightening into an odd pucker. Salak in Bali is reputed to be especially sweet and commands higher prices than salak from other parts of Indonesia.

  1. I guessed it! I lived in Indonesia for two years and remember all the interesting fruit there. My kids loved rambutan, especially.

    ‘Salak’ is one of my fav fruit ^^ Actually the best salak is coming from Jogjakarta called ‘salak pondoh’.

    If you are still in Indonesia, you should try ‘Rambutan’ and ‘Manggis’
