Rambutan is a fruit plant native to Southeast Asia and commonly grown in tropical regions. The fruit of the rambutan is a small, round or oval-shaped berry with a red, pink, or yellow skin covered in soft, spiky hairs. The skin is easily peeled to reveal a translucent white flesh that surrounds a single seed.
The flesh of the rambutan is sweet and juicy with a flavor similar to lychee. It is commonly eaten fresh as a snack or used in desserts, jams, and other sweet dishes. The fruit is also rich in vitamin C, iron, and other nutrients.
Rambutan trees can grow up to 20 meters tall and produce fruit year-round in tropical climates. They prefer well-drained soil and regular watering, but can tolerate some drought. The trees are usually propagated by seed or grafting, and take several years to bear fruit. Overall, the rambutan is a popular fruit plant for its delicious and nutritious fruit, as well as its ornamental value in landscaping.
