Consider The Rambutan – 1

Consider The Rambutan - 1
We found this at our local market and had to investigate. The taste reminds me of lychee.

“According to popular belief and the origin of its name, rambutan is native to Indonesia and Malaysia. The earliest record of rambutan trees show that they were cultivated by the Malayan jungle tribes around their temporary settlements, a practice followed to date. Rambutan trees grow naturally in Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and elsewhere in Southeast Asia, although its precise natural distribution is unknown. It is closely related to several other edible tropical fruits including the lychee, longan, and mamoncillo.[4] It is native to the Indonesian Archipelago, from where it spread westwards to Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka and India; northwards to Vietnam, and the Philippines.”

  1. Very beautiful. The way you captured the spines are amazing. I have never seen or tasted one. Thank you. I will have to further research this delight. I guess the fruit is somewhere inside the spikes. Is it easier to open than a coconut:-)
