Types of fruit
Salak, also known as the snake fruit, comes from a species of palm native to Indonesia. These fruit grow at the base of the palm, and gained the name snake fruit from their red brown, scaly skin. The skin is easily removed, and inside are 3 white, sweet segments that each contain a large black inedible seed. When eaten, the fruit has a slightly acidic but sweet flavor somewhat like the pineapple, and the consistency of apples.
Sugar Apple While called an apple, this fruit looks more like a raspberry because of it’s lumpy outer shell. Inside, sugar apples have a sweet yellowish flesh that has the texture and taste of custard. In fact, another name for the sugar apple is custard apple. This fruit is popular in Southern Asia, although it is native to the Americas. Growers in Taiwan combined it with a cherimoya to make the atemoya.
