Rambutan and Lansones are my most favorite tropical fruit. Rambutan fruit has a thick skin that is covered with fine, short hairs. It's a small fruit, not bigger than the size of a hen's egg. Inside, you will find a small seed covered with half transparent flesh. The color of rambutan is red or yellow. The fruit has a soft sweet taste. The name "rambutan" comes from the Malay world "rambut", which means 'hair'. There is a great demand for this fruit. You usually find this kind of fruit in the islands of Mindanao, Panay, southern Luzon (region Batangas) and Mindoro.
Lansones is very sweet fruit, was first discovered in Malaysia. This fruit is usually very expensive.
