Rambutans are exotic fruits grown in tropical countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Australia. They grow on a medium-sized tree, Nephelium iappaceum, which is related to the lychee. The fruit grows in clusters on evergreen trees and are hairy-looking exotic wonders.
They are not exotic at all to the people of these tropical areas. The name rambutan means hairy, referring to the spikes on the skin of the fruit. The spikes aren't sharp; they are fleshy and pliable.
Like the lychee, under the rind, there is the tasty white flesh of the fruit and a single inedible seed. The fruit can be eaten fresh, without cooking. Most rambutans are red when they are ripe, but in Malaysia, you can also find a smaller, yellow rambutan.
The flavor of rambutan is a little like grapes with a slight strawberry quality, slightly acidic and sweet. It has a pleasant fragrance that may be desired in some cooked dishes. It's not as sweet as the lychee and also is a little less acidic.
