Adventures in Fruit: Rambutan!

Rama-lama-ding-dong, you say? NO! Rambutan. Apparently it means “hairy” in Maylay and these babies are definitely hairy. They come in 2 colors that I’ve seen: red and yellow but only one flavor: DELICIOUS!

They taste like lychee except slightly more acidic. They’re delicious and a great source of niacin, manganese and vitamin C. I won’t be snubbing these hairy weirdoes.

    I can’t make any guarantees but there’s definitely lots of fresh fruit in season… either lychee or longan will most likely be ready when you get here.

    I was so excited to try the ones I picked up but they got frozen in the mini fridge and I think it made them go bad. 😦

    I used to eat those all the time when I was growing up in Indonesia. I missed them so much!

  9. I like these, but I can only get them frozen here. 😦
