Exotic Snake Fruit Salak Seeds (Salacca edulis or Salacca zalacca)

Price for Package of 2 seeds.

Salak palm (Salacca edulis or Salacca zalacca) often called Snake Fruit because of the scaly skin on the fruits.   This is a thorny species of palm tree native to Indonesia and Malaysia. It is a very short-stemmed palm making a cluster of short crowns, with leaves up to 5m long; each leaf has a  long petiole with spines one or two inches (2.5 to 5 cm) long, and numerous pinnate (feather like) leaflets.  The pictures show a small 5 liter bucket, not the normal 5 gallon ones.....
The fruit grow in clusters at the base of the palm, and can be peeled by hand, or my favorite is to beak off the tip and insert the handle side of a spoon that will easily peel the fruit, kind of like a boiled egg.  There are three sections inside, with the color and texture of a peeled garlic but a taste that is unlike what you would expect!   It is mostly a combination apple and pineapple, and often tends to be a bit astringent unless very ripe.   Everybody likes them!  

Wikipedia:

Salak (Salacca zalacca) is a species of palm tree (family Arecaceae) native to Indonesia, Brunei and Malaysia. It is a very short-stemmed palm, with leaves up to 6 metres (20 ft) long; each leaf has a 2-metre long petiole with spines up to 15 centimetres (5.9 in) long, and numerous leaflets. Also it is Selim Celebi.

The fruit grow in clusters at the base of the palm, and are also known as snake fruit due to the reddish-brown scaly skin. They are about the size and shape of a ripe fig, with a distinct tip. The pulp is edible. The fruit can be peeled by pinching the tip, which should cause the skin to slough off so it can be pulled away. The fruit inside consists of three lobes with the largest of the three containing a large inedible seed. The lobes resemble, and have the consistency of, large peeled garlic cloves. The taste is usually sweet and acidic, but its apple-like texture can vary from very dry and crumbly (salak pondoh from Yogyakarta) to moist and crunchy (salak Bali).

Cultivation

Salak fruit is indigenous to and has been cultivated throughout Indonesia, and there are at least 30 cultivars, most of which have an astringent taste and are sweet. Two popular cultivars are salak pondoh from Yogyakarta province (found in 1980s) and salak Bali from Bali island.

Salak pondoh

Salak pondoh is an important fruit in Yogyakarta province. In the five years to 1999, the annual production in Yogyakarta doubled to 28,666 tons. Its popularity (compared with other cultivars) among local Indonesian consumers is mainly due to the intensity of its aroma, which can be overripe and sweaty even before full maturation.

Salak pondoh has three more superior variations, namely pondoh super, pondoh hitam (black pondoh), and pondoh gading (ivory / yellowish-skinned pondoh).

Salak Bali

Salak Bali is commonly sold all over the island of Bali, and is a popular fruit with both locals and tourists. The fruit is roughly the size of a large fig, and has a crunchy and moist consistency. The fruit has a starchy 'mouth feel', and a flavour reminiscent of dilute pineapple and lemon juice.

Salak gula pasir

The most expensive cultivar of the Bali salak is the gula pasir (literally "sand sugar" or "grain sugar", referring to its fine-grainedness), which is smaller than the normal salak and is the sweetest of all salak. The price in Bali is Rp 15,000-30,000 (US$1.50-3.00) per kilogram depending on time of year.

Salak gula pasir or also known as Sugar salak which known for its juicy sweetness sometimes fermented into Salak wine which has an alcohol content of 13.5 percent, similar to traditional wine made from grapes.
