Rambutan

Rambutan (Rambutan, Ngo, “hairy fruit”). The amusing appearance of rambutan is remembered immediately. The round red fruits (up to 5 cm in diameter) are really “hairy”, even he is named after the Indonesian word “Rambut”, that is, “hair”. In addition to red, rambutan can be yellow or reddish-orange.

These fruit trees are cultivated everywhere in the countries of Southeast Asia (especially rambutan is popular in Thailand), as well as in Africa, Australia, and the countries of the Caribbean.

The peel is soft, very easily removed by hands, and under it is very juicy translucent flesh, fragrant and sweet, often with a slight pleasant sourness. The color of the gelatinous flesh can be red or white.

A raw stone is better to eat, since it can be poisonous, and its taste is not very good, but toasted seeds can be safely eaten. Jams and jelly are also made from rambutan; it can often be bought in our stores in canned form.

Rambutan fruits contain protein, carbohydrates, phosphorus, iron, calcium, nicotinic acid, vitamins C, B1 and B2.
