   longan                                               lychee                                    rambutan ( stuffed with pineapple)

The longan is very similar to the lychee, with a yellowish or reddish brown fruit and a gummy white aril. Its flesh, which is less aromatic than that the lychee, surrounds a round shiny jet-black seed with a circular white spot at the base. The appearance of the seed has given rise to one of the longan's other names - the dragon's eye. Sometimes these seeds, which have a high saponin (a soap-like compound) content, are used as a hair shampoo.

Unlike the lychee and longan, rambutans originate in the humid tropics. The name rambutan derives from the Malaysian word rambut meaning a hair and has arisen from the 'hairy' surface of the fruit which consists of numerous soft red spines covering a pinkish red or yellow skin. Inside the skin, the edible fleshy white aril is juicy and sweet.

By far pineapple in several grades and tropical fruit cocktail are in quantity and value the biggest in internationally traded tropical fruits.
