As I’ve posted before, we get to experience all kinds of tropical fruit. Although we like tropical fruit, we do crave berries, cantaloupe, nectarines, grapes and peaches that we can’t get in a tropical environment.
There was a fruit that we noticed out and about, but didn’t know what it was. Jonah ate this fruit at a friend’s house. His friend’s family used to serve in the Philippines and were familiar with this little red spiky fruit. I asked Sophie if she knew this fruit and she said no. She said she asked a man selling it what it was called and he said he didn’t know what it’s called. The fruit is called rambutan. We purchased some rambutan (16 for about $1). The outside is a fun red with soft spiky looking hairs and the inside is white and is like a very firm grape flesh.
