Those are really interesting fruits, I've never seen anything like them before. I wish I could try them.
Oh, I love our local fruits. Got some mangosteen from our pasar malam for only RM10 for 3kg. Another mistake I made was to eat a whole bunch of rambutan on my own. I lost my voice the next day ~ most likely due to heatiness coz by too much of rambutans. Now I am hoping to recover soon coz I have been eyeing the durians!!! Hope it won't take too long ~ yum, yum durian!!!
I have traveled in Vietnam and Cambodia a few times and they have a fruit like the Rambutan that I loved!
Oh I'm so jealous! I spent some time in Southeast Asia a couple years ago and fell in love with these fruits. Rambutans are my favorite!
It is so interesting to see what you grow.

A friend was saying about though condition most plants and trees has been programmed to force flowering and fruiting...When I was a kid, old folks did the unusual thing of slashing the trunk of large trees to induce flowering. They were 100 % right!!These fruits are very nice, rambutan being sweet and watery, mangosteen being sweet with a touch of sour taste.I havent tasted any durian yet so far... hmmThanks.~ bangchik
