RIPE RAMBUTAN


Finally I find ripe rambutan.
Look so many reddish fruits on the tree.


There are so many black ants on the tree, especially on the fruits cluster.



Rambutan is come from word 'rambut' means hair.
So... look the hairy skin!


There are black mold on the fruit skin, and of course it will invite the ants to come on.


Yesterday, my son asked me to pick some rambutan.
Then, I picked some fruit clusters for him.
Actually, I want to let the fruits reach their peak of maturity with the dark red skin.



 When I tasted the pulp, it's taste fairy sweet and dry.





And the pulp is not too juicy.


My son is really love it.
I didn't know how much he ate it.



I found so many seedless fruits.


As the first time fruiting season, the yield is not bad enough.
I'm so confuse, I will cut it down the tree or will let the tree grow  and produce better yields.

    1. Rambutan is very popular fruit here. This plant is native from South East Asia, especially Indonesia. There are so many varieties here. Actually this fruit have very good taste, sweet and fairy dry.

  5. Now I'm confused! Why would you cut down a tree that is giving you such lovely fruit? As Jo says, they look like lychees, a delicious fruit, so I think it best that they tree stays!

    1. The tree does not give me the yield as good as my expectation. In my expectation, the tree have a cluster of fruits at the end of the branching or every trunks. And... the taste should be much sweeter.

    1. Yeah, I should be patient. Maybe the next season the yield will much better. I really hope that. The yield is usually influenced by the current weather

  10. They look like lychees. I've recently found a lychee juice to buy here which is delicious but I've never tasted the fresh fruit yet

    1. Both of them have a similar taste. Rambutan has softer flavor, and in some varieties less juicy than lychee
