Rambutan (Ugly Red Fruit)



Driving through Sri Lanka, we passed many road side vendors selling this odd looking red fruit. I asked my driver what it was so he stopped at the next vendor and bought me a bag full. The spikes are not sharp so peeling the shell did not result in any punctures to my skin. The fruit inside is white and very sticky and tastes similar to lychee, a favorite in India.
