The taste of exotic rambutan is a combination of sweet and sour in one bite, with a floral undertone that takes you to the tropics. Its flavor is similar to a grape, lychee or longan, although not as sweet. Peeling off the skin is simple, even though it is covered in soft spines
Rambutans are a good source of copper to help maintain bones and nerves and provide vitamin C, an antioxidant that strengthens the immune system and reduces inflammation. The fruits also contain fiber to regulate the digestive tract and contribute smaller amounts of iron, phosphorus, manganese, and magnesium.
