Early Rambutan Season

Rambutan season has now began! Rambutan is a tropical fruit that is reddish and covered with fleshy pliable spines. Rambutan is derived from the Malay word rambut, which means hairs. One the skin is peeled off, the fruit is translucent, whitish in colour, with a sweet, mildly acidic flavour similar to lychee.

Actually, it's not a rambutan but a pulasan, which is in the same family.

I like pulasan than rambutan..it's more tender & juicy
