Rambutan, Oh Rambutan

Rambutans, rambutans, oh how I love rambutans!
I remember growing up, our house had a rambutan tree. When it was fruiting season, definitely I would brave the mosquitoes and spend many happy moments "harvesting" the fruits. I always got scolding from my mom coz' the rambutans would not have a chance to turn truly red.  I also always ended up with a cough.

Now that I've moved back to my mom's house, I have a rambutan tree again. However, I don't think it is the same tree. I believe my mom got rid of that one and planted another one. I'm not sure about that. Hmmm... will have to check with her tomorrow. Anyway, all those rambutans you see in the picture above is NOT from my tree. My tree is just beginning to flower. These rambutans are from a neighbor's house. They gave us permission to do a bit of harvesting. These ones are the yellow rambutans.

We've been having quite a few rambutan feasts the last few weeks. AND the best part is, IT's FREE. Nowadays, a small bunch will cost you something like RM5.

A few days ago, we went to another neighbor's house to harvest rambutans. No need permission coz' it's an abandon house. Well... actually I was kinda scared that we might bump into or disturb our invisible neighbors there. You know what I mean? Well, we tried not to stay too long.

Anyway, I look forward to my tree bearing fruits. I'll have to fight the squirrels and birds though. Oh, and we are all coughing now. Sigh!

Yummy, juicy, sweet rambutans

My son loves taking pictures of birds. He caught a bunch of long tailed parakeets having a rambutan feast.

What is your favorite fruit?

  1. But, cannot take too much at one time. It will trigger coughing.

  2. I love rambutan but hate it when I ate the skin of the seed. I prefer mangoes more! :)

  3. Hi I'm-a-full-time-mummy,
    My son and DH is the same, they don't like to eat the skin of the seed. I love mangoes too. I love almost all M'sian fruits.
