These days I find intrigue at the grocery store. Found this little rambutan in the produce section and thought it would be fun to photograph so I had to buy it. Cost me a whopping $.30.
I wasn't sure how to go about eating it so of course I had to google it. I thought I'd have to deal with all that "hair" in some way. But no...just make a slit and pop the fruit out.
It's got a white fruit in the center which is sort of the texture of a peeled grape but a little softer and weirder. At first I didn't think I could handle the texture but it grew on me. The fruit tasted good...sweet with a slight hint of almond.
That's my first and probably last rambutan. While tasty I'd rather eat an apple :-)
