Rambutans – a common fruit

Pictured below are rambutans, a very common fruit in this part of the world.  They look pretty odd with all the tendril-like hairs coming off of them, but inside is what I would consider a pretty basic, normal, and tasty fruit.  A suppose the flesh is somewhat similar to a grape. If you’re looking for more information, head on over to wikipedia.
