|The Rambutan is an exotic fruit grown here to export to U,S, Here we can buy a dozen for cheap. In the U.S. they cost about $1.50 each. But they are really delicious.|
The rambutan looks kind of like a big strawberry. You cut it open and throw out the thick skin, eat the white fruit and spit out the pit,
