"Rambutans - Juicy and sweet" Top 5 Page for this destination Kuala Kangsar Favorite Tip by SLLiew

Kuala Kangsar Favorites: 15 reviews and 15 photos


Favorite thing: Rambutan is another popular seasonal fruits. On the trees, there are often ants. Usually the fruits sold are ants-free.

The malay word "rambut" means "hair". The skin of the hairy rambutan is soft. It is usually red in color but yellow ones are liked too. There are many varieties in sizes, water content and sweetness. It is easy to pinch open a rambutan or use a small knife or your teetch.

There is a small hard seed which is not edible. Most first timers will like the taste of rambutan. Eating too much rambutans can make one thirsty.

Rambutan can be found sold in cans from Thailand. Some with a piece of pineapple in the middle and makes nice desserts or drink.
