Its flavor has been compared to that of a slightly sour vanilla ice cream, a peach, and a strawberry. All you have to do to reveal its soft and white inner fruit is to simply peel off and discard the rind.

The rambutan is also from the Southeast Asia and is considered as a more exotic version of the lychee. Bearing a size similar to a golf ball, this exquisite fruit has a creamy and sweet taste hidden inside.
