Star fruit, Rambutan and Cherry Tomatoes at this fruit and vegetable stand. Rambutan is a Malay/Indonesian origin and means "hairy man". You will find a similar syllable in Orang-Utan. Rambutan is a hair fruit, very popular all over Asia. and today also more and more planted and harvested in Australia. The fruit looks very nice and I will never forget the taste of its inedible skin. Because after arriving from a dehydrating long haul flight from Europe, the first thing I did in the hotel room was to bite into this great looking fruit. It is actually juicy, but please peel it first, you save yourself a very bitter experience
