Rambutan fruit comes from a rambutan tree whose taxonomic name is Nephelium Lappaceum. The fruit has a thick hairy-looking skin and a somewhat large seed on the inside. Rambutan fruit tastes pretty sweet and is kind of similar to a soft ripe pear. This fruit closely relates to other tropical fruits like Lychee and Longan. Today Rambutan can be found growing in Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Central America, Oceania, Africa, and most of Asia. People can use Rambutan for jams, jellies, canning, or just enjoy it fresh. It is believed that fresh rambutans which are still attached to their branch contain higher nutritional value than the fruit that was separated from their branches. Continue reading →

I really recommend that anyone who has similar pain to start paying attention when and why it’s happening. Continue reading →
