Closely related to the lychee and logan, the Rambutan is very unusual looking with its hairy appearance. It gets its name from the Malaysian word for hair, "rambut." It has a juicy-sweet texture, and an enjoyable flavor similar to a lychee, but less acidic. Peel off the hairy skin to extract to fruit, and remove the seed. The rosy flavor of the rambutan resembles the strawberry and muscat grape. Its fragrant perfume characterizes this unique fruit
