Rambutan is a tropical fruit tree of the same botanical family as litchi (or lychee) and is native to Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. The fruit of the rambutan grows in large clusters and gets its name from the Malay word 'rambut' meaning 'hairy,' referring to the coat of soft reddish spines covering the soft white flesh underneath the rind. Once peeled, the rambutan fruit with its off-white flesh, oblong golf ball size and central inedible brown pip, is to the untrained eye, quite indistinguishable from the lychi! The somewhat translucent flesh of the rambutan is deliciously sweet, juicy and simply bursting with Vitamin C. These tropical fruits are most commonly eaten fresh, after having been peeled out of their brightly colored hairy jackets and de-stoned. The best quality and most flavorsome fruits are sold in market places still attached in clusters to the bearing branch of their parent tree.
