Rambutan, also known as Nephelium lappaceum is native to the Indonesian region and other tropical regions of southeast Asia. Our rambutan is imported from Guatemala or Honduras. Rambutan is a very interesting looking fruit with soft spines that are dark red to light green. The white flesh is firm, similar to a grape and is sweet and juicy. The pulp surrounds a large seed that is inedible.
Rambutan is a rich source of fiber, vitamin C and copper which plays a key role in proper growth and maintenance for many cells in the body, including those in the heart, brain and bones. Rambutan is available in the summer and fall months of the year.
Fun fact: In Vietnam, rambutan is called “chom chom”, which means “messy hair”, due to the spines covering the fruit’s skin

Tropical Fruit ripens best in warm temperatures. If you have received fruit that has not ripened and you wish to speed up the ripening process, we recommend to either put your fruit in paper bags or wrapped in a kitchen towel and placed in a dry, warm area. Alternatively, you may also place your fruit outside in the sun (in an area mindful of bug) which will also speed up the ripening process.
