Salak, colloquially know as snake fruit because of its scaly skin, has a sweetness of flesh that is tempered by a slight acidity.
From the same family as the lychee, the longan is less distinctive in look than its better-known cousin, and also tastes more tart.
When sliced in two, sweet star apples reveal a star-shaped core. An added bonus: they are one of the lowestcalorie tropical fruits.
Similar in appearance to a grapefruit, the pomelo swaps its relation's sour bitterness for a mild sweetness.
Purple on the outside with snow-white inner segments, the mangosteen is sweet, tangy and juicy all at once – a true flavour hit.
The sapodilla, known as a lmot in Cambodia, is native to Mexico but widely grown in Southeast Asia. The soft inner pulp has a sweet, malty flavour.
With a pink skin that hides white or vibrant pink pulp specked with tiny black seeds, the subtly flavoured dragon fruit tastes as good as it looks.
In Cambodia, mangoes are consumed at various stages of ripeness – one popular snack is green mango dipped in chilli salt and sugar.
