Rambutan

Rambutan
The word "rambut" in the fruit name 'rambutan' is Malay for 'hairy,' and this refers to the spiky rind.

Indeed, without the soft spines on the rind, the rambutan would resemble the lychee which is in the same botanical family.

The structure internally is quite similar, with a single central inedible seed and edible white flesh wrapped around it but the skin is the part that makes the rambutan so distinctive in appearance.

Originally commonly grown in various Asian countries, and now grown in tropical Australia, these are not only interesting to look at, but great eating.

See HERE for the fully prickly experience.
