Salak, also known as “snake fruit,” caught our attention not so much for its taste – which is described as akin to that of a pineapple – but for its texture. The outside of the fruit looks like the brown-red scales of a snake. The eye-catching fruit is native to Indonesia and all three strains of the fruit sell by the thousands of tons each year. The salak fruits are used in a variety of local recipes and the sweetest salak fruits, grown on the island of Bali, are fermented into a strong wine.
