How to eat Snake Fruit:
To eat, remove the stem and peel back the scaly brown skin. Each lobe within is covered in a white film, similar to that on the outside of a hardboiled egg. Be sure to remove the layer of film before eating. Most Snake fruit is eaten fresh, out-of-hand as a snack. The sweetly sour flavor and pineapple fragrance make Snake Fruit excellent in pies, jams, candied, pickled, made into syrup or even fermented into a wine. (Speciality Produce)
