Rambutan, also known as Nephelium lappaceum is native to the Indonesian region and other tropical regions of Southeast Asia. Rambutan is from the same family as Lychee & Longan, with a very similar flavor and texture, but this is their cooler looking cousin.
iHeartFruitBox sources our rambutan from farmers in Guatemala & Honduras, whose climates produces some of the sweetest Rambutan's we have ever tasted.
Rambutan is a very interesting looking fruit with soft fuzzy hairs/spines that are dark red to light green. The white flesh is firm, sweet and juicy. The pulp surrounds a large seed that is inedible.
Rambutan is a rich source of fiber, vitamin C and copper which plays a key role in proper growth and maintenance for many cells in the body, including those in the heart, brain and bones.

Rambutan Pro Tips
This is ready to eat ripe upon arrival. For extended shelf life, store in the refrigerator with high humidity. Break the skin and eat the flesh that surrounds the seed. Do not eat the seed. Due to oxidation the outer shell may become dark in color (sometimes even close to black) but this does not affect the fruit inside. The seed is very soft/delicate so be gentle biting into the flesh.
