I've seen these in Asian markets, and they are indeed striking fruits—though I have never bought them, not knowing what to do with them or how to eat them. Or even the name, so I could look it up! Now I know, thanks! I'll definitely try them next time I see them.


I was introduced to these by my BIL - who lives on the Big Island. Never see them here. Nice pics


And Happy New Year!


Never seen or heard of this before. The B&W photo makes it look even more intriguing to me. :-)

Ciao Frank. Give them a try. They are nice. If you do, let me know if you find out where they come from.

Thank you, Katie.

Ciao Paz. They are visually striking. And a pleasure to eat.


I have never tried these! and have never seen them look so beautiful! Love the 2nd one - the close up shot.


I love both your images-the overall shot of the rambutan and the close up as it tells the whole story of what the plant looks like. Thanks for contributing to BWW #111

Hi Soma. The fruit is fun to peel and tastes really nice. I hope you get to try it one day.

Thank you, Lynne. It was my pleasure :)
