Hairy fruits and a climber.

Rambutan
is the name of the fruit.









These rambutans are really hairy.
Rambut means hair in Malay Language.
and the man is showing how climbing should be done.
Such an agile man ........ !

  5. In the old days, climbing trees was a natural skill that many boys and sometimes even girls acquire at a very young age. Boys, girls, aunties and uncles climb trees to pluck fruits, have a better view, to hide, even to tease or whistle at girls. We homo sapiens, seem to have evolved away from the need to climb trees.

    Thanks for the visit, and comments.

    On Tuesday July 14 2009, I posted an entry titled "fruits season is here". There is a glimpse of rambutan, a close-up and whats the inside look like. Like lychee too in many ways. Delicious.

    No harm climbing trees, good exercise for sure. Just be careful about ants... some bite hard and make you yell!!!... Kerengga, the local red large ants will attack you in an army... haha.

    have Fun

  7. Rambutan - delicious! Our trees are another month away from being ready. Can't wait. Hope you're enjoying yours. Do you have the yellow variety there too?

    Rambutans do have specific name. The yellow ones as you mentioned are called rambutan gading. Certain variety is very sour.. and you can almost be certain about them being very sour when the tree is heavy with over ripened fruits and yet no sign of anyone plucking.

    So in a month time, it's your turn, Ancel.

  9. ooh, I wouldn't mind having some of this! And fresh off the tree! In Vietnam, these are called Chôm Chôm. Hairy and spiny looking but soft to the touch.

    You sum it well " hairy and spiny looking but soft to the touch"...... so rambutan goes by many names... chom chom in cambodia.

    I can finish a kilo of these in less than an hour... haha. Such a taste!

  11. I've seen them in the shops but not tried them. If they taste like Lychees I'll give them a go. The problem with unfamiliar fruits is knowing when they are ripe!

  13. Oh these are cool - I've seen them a few times in the market (very expensive because I don't think they're grown here) Always wondered how they were grown.

    Imported things are always expensive anywhere. These are fairly cheap here.... Averaging RM4 per kilo. That would be like 50 pence England currency. [just hope my exchange rate is right.. haha]
