  Rambutan in syrup:

The rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum), the Hairy Lychee, a medium-sized tropical tree in the family Sapindaceae, is from the south east Asian archipelago. It prefers high humidity and rainfall and little variation from a 28�C daily mean temperature. It is closely related to several other edible tropical fruits including the Lychee, Longan and Mamoncillo.

This luscious fruit is a round to oval drupe 3-6 cm (rarely to 8 cm) long and 3-4 cm broad, borne in a loose pendant cluster of 10-20 together and has sweet, translucent flesh, whitish or very pale pink, with a sweet, mildly acidic flavour.

The leathery skin is reddish (rarely orange or yellow), and covered with fleshy pliable spines" hair". As the rambutan darkens with age quickly, the brightly colored fruit with fleshy spines are the most fresh.

Peeled rambutan can be used in fruit salad, for dessert toppings, and in a sauce for chicken and seafood dishes.

The canned rambutan is avilable in different sizes to serve both retail and institutional purposes. The cuts include slice, chunk, tidbit and crushed packed in either natural juice or syrup.
