What are YOU looking at?

Originally uploaded by CleverGirlBek

Rambutan! Tasty tasty fruit…

Although this is not what is looks like when it is ripe and just picked…Apparently the dark brown-ness happens if it isn’t refrigerated or eaten within days of picking…

BUT

still so tasty…

Kind of like a green grape crossed with a lychee…

Texture is a cross between a peeled grape and a gummy bear- bouncy but not rubbery…

Sweet and very much a dessert flavor….

Yum.

Ok… A picture without the googly eyes:

and now for the closeup….

(you peel them by scoring them around the middle with a knife and then prying the skin off… there is an almond shaped nut/seed in the middle…don’t eat the seed…)
