Rambutan fruit (ram-what?!) is produced from the Nephelium lappaceum tree, is a relative to the lychee which instantly makes me think of my favourite martini drink! (no judging).
Is rambutan the next ‘superfood’ or hype?
The odd looking rambutan fruit caught my attention in the grocery store. It’s ugly, spiked, yet neatly packaged in groups of five and priced (not cheap at near 1$ ea) like it is an exotic nutritional gem. So putting aside my common sense and indulging my curiousity, I bought a package!
