Food Glossary: Rambutan

This tropical fruit is named by a Malay word which means 'hairy'... but don't worry, this spiky looking fruit is not sharp to hold so don't be put off by the outside!  Red in colour on the outside, and translucent on the inside this fruit is very similar in taste and texture to the lychee (also a relative!).  I really like the little fruit and you can find it growing across South East Asia which is good!
