I tried salak fruit in Cambodja end of January. I took 7 seeds to home and put them to pot in 30.1.2017. It took about 6 weeks before there was little sprout on the surface. Today 19.3. there is 5 little salak babies on the surface of the pot.
Easy to grow, but need tropical climate to establish quickly. Strawberry taste dominates the taste. Excellent fruit and very special.
There are 3 Bali Salaks (S.zalacca amboina) with the pictured highland one the best.Pondoh is the best Inonesian one (S.z.zalacca) with Thai Salacca wallichiana var.sumalee and noen wong being excellent and cold tolerant
Plants flourish in constantly moist, but well drained soil.
