Rambutan are non-climacteric fruit - that is, they ripen only on the tree.
That's nice.These trees are not from our house. It is from my grandfather's house. We have a plant infront of our house. But they haven't yet started to fruit.
my father has planted these trees in our backyard :)
Yes Seema, Rumbutan's grow well in Kerala. There are a lot of orchards in Pathanamthitta district, Kerala.
do these fruits grow in Kerala?
Hi annorion, It tastes like lychee. And if you haven't tasted lychee, I would say its a bit chewy and very sweet when ripe. But as Leana Lahom-Cristobal said, it is sweet and sour when not fully ripe. It is a really tasty fruit. But I have heard that there are many people who doesn't like its taste. And I have no idea why. Hope you will get to try it once.
The flesh that is exposed when the outer skin is peeled is sweet/sour and a little gummy. It tastes good annorion. The fruit is in season now even in the PHilippines.
They kind of look like fuzzy strawberries. I'm curious...what do they taste like?
