    spiky red fruit rambutan

    You may have seen this spiky red fiendish looking fruit in your local asian supermarket in the UK. They are called Rambutan and don’t worry, they are not as “out there” as they look. In fact, they are pretty tasty and what you will find behind the devilish top layer is a fruit that is very similar to lychee. They originate from Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia and I love the way they look.

    How do you open it? Its much like peeling an orange – with your fingers, it’s super easy!

    Just to give you an idea of what they look like before you rush out to buy some, here is the fruit itself (left) and the seed (right). Go on – give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments.
