Rambutan - Exotic Fruit by Sharon Brown
Clear

I saw these in a supermarket and wondered what they were. The assistant told me Dragon Fruit and as I didn’t know any different, I believed her – until I arrived home and looked it up on the net and found that Dragon Fruits look nothing like this!
After a bit of searching I discovered that they are Rambutan and the taste is similar to a lychee…very nice.
In Malaysia, rambutan flowers from March to July and again between June and November, usually in response to rain following a dry period. Flowering periods differ for other localities. Most, but not all, flowers open early in the day. Up to 100 flowers in each female panicle may be open each day during peak bloom.The fruit matures 15–18 weeks after flowering.

A passionate photographer, I enjoy capturing images of the world around me.
