In case you don't know, this is the rambutan fruit native to tropical South East Asia. My Lolo (grandpa) have lots of these very sweet fruit in his orchard in the Philippines. Have you ever tried it? Rambutan trees can be male producing only staminate flowers hence, produce no fruit. The female or hermaphroditic produce flowers that are female with a small percentage of male flowers. So I guess that's how they produce their fruits. The peeled fruits are sweet and can be eaten raw, and the seeds can be cooked and eaten. No waste. And the hairy peel as you can see, can be used for some art. Just like how used it to fashion my night fury dragon toy. Ha!
