Salak

Salak (Salak, Salakka, Rakum, Snake fruit, Snake fruit, Salacca zalacca). A very popular fruit in Southeast Asia.

Teardrop-shaped fruits (up to 4 cm in diameter) are covered with a brown scaly skin, which to many really resembles snake skin. The peel is removed relatively easily, but it is covered with sharp small spikes that easily dig into the skin of the hands, so you need to clean it carefully, preferably with a knife.

Under the spiky skin is a beige pulp, which is segmented into several fragments, and several inedible seeds.
You will remember this fruit not only because of its unusual appearance, but also for its bright sweet and sour taste, in the shades of which you feel persimmon, someone pear, someone pineapple or a banana with a nutty flavor, that is, you should definitely try it, you can’t explain in words.

Salak contains calcium, vitamin C, beta carotene, so its regular use has a positive effect on the condition of hair and nails, improves vision, and also has a good effect on the digestive tract and brain activity.
