Rambutan means hairy in Malay, and you may very well agree when you see this red, hairy fruit. If you are brave enough to peel it, you find a tender, juicy fruit inside with a delicious sweet and sour taste. Imported from its native Southeast Asia, the fruit is often available in Asian fruit markets and stores.
