This week’s bag features Rambutan! Rambutan is closely related to the lychee, longan, and mamoncillo. The fruit has a red, leathery skin with fleshy spines. The name rambutan is derived from the Malay-Indonesian language word for ‘hair’ (rambut) due to its numerous hairy protuberances or spines. The flesh is translucent to white with a single seed. The peeled fruits can be enjoyed raw with a sweet flavor, similar to grapes. The fruit can be cut open or the rind can be bitten into. Once the rind is cut, the fruit can be pried open and the inner flesh squeezed or popped out. The seed is edible and the whole fruit can also be cooked. What else is in this week’s bag?
