fire red hairy balls


These have the most peculiar flavour. You'd think they'd be juicy and all, but no . . . the fruit is dry, with a texture of something that's sat in the sun for too long. Interesting and all, but hardly worth the effort it takes to hack through the thick skin. They're supposed to be called rambutans. The other name works too.

  1. Looks similar to snake fruit, something I had while in Bali. It was also dry, more like a citrusy jicama. They were quite good, but really unusual.
