Rambutan
Native to Malaysia, the rambutan is commonly grown throughout the archipelago and Southeast Asia. Small and deep red in color, the fruit is covered with soft hair-like spines. The Malay word for hair is rambut, hence the name.  Cutting around the middle and removing the leathery rind, reveals the succulent flesh which clings to an oblong pit but does not adhere to the rind.

Considered a delicacy among fruit varieties, rambutan reminds some of a  grape but possesses a more complex flavor. Tavilla sources Rambutan from Hawaii.
