Hi Neighbors! Indonesia is a country blessed with a tropical climate. With its unique weather and climate, Nusantara has several unique plants that can produce nutritious fruits. However, of the many fruits that exist, it turns out that there are fruits in Indonesia that are considered less commonly eaten abroad. Therefore, let's discuss fruits from Indonesia that are considered unique.
Rambutan fruit is covered by a skin that has "hair" on the outside. The color is green when young, then gradually yellow to red when ripe. The edible part of the fruit, the "flesh", is actually the seed coat or aryl, which can be attached to the outer shell of the seed.
This plant originating from western Southeast Asia has similarities with langsat fruit, kokosan, pisitan, celoring and others with various variations.
Star fruit is greenish yellow. When just growing, the fruit is green. When cut, this fruit has a star-shaped cross section. Seeds are small and brown. This fruit is crunchy when eaten, tastes sweet and slightly sour. This fruit contains a lot of vitamin C.
The fruit is eaten fresh or processed first. The flesh of the cempedak fruit, sometimes along with the seeds, is given flour, sugar or salt and fried, used as a snack to drink tea or coffee. The seeds can be fried, boiled or roasted, before being eaten with a mixture of a little salt. The young fruit, like young jackfruit, can be used as vegetables.
Mangosteen is eaten ripe by splitting the skin in half carefully so that the contents can be removed. However, young green mangosteen is also sold with a more sour taste but at the same time sweet.
Salak is mainly grown for its fruit, which is popular as a table fruit. Besides being eaten fresh, salak is also commonly made sweets, pickles, canned, or packaged as salak chips. Young salak is used for salad ingredients. In addition, salak is also often processed into lunkhead, dates, coffee, and even pudding. Snake fruit can also be eaten.
