more about this fruit...
Rambutan comes from the word Rambut in the the Malay language meaning hair. The tree can be monoecious or dioecious (seperate male and female plants) and is native to Indonesia. Fruits are small, about the size of a golf ball, and covered in a furry fibrous skin. Inside the skin is a juicy aril surrounding an almond shaped seed. The texture can be likened to a grape along with the flavor, but more pungent and sweet and sour. The tree grows between 12 to 20 meters tall and prefers hot tropical climates under 500 meters asl.
