Hay, is it Rambutan fruit?
No, it is not rambutan, the hairs of the fruits are much thicker, shorter and lesser. The skin of the fruit is thicker. otherwise it look slightly similar to Rambutan.....
It is one of the exotic tropical fruits, that you must try.
In Malaysia, it is called Pulasan or Kapulasan, in Philippines it is called Bulala. Its scientific name is Nephelium mutabile. It is consider sweeter than Rambutan and Lychee. It is rare in South East Asia. The fruits (that the photo was taken) are from Kulim, Kedah.
