Rambutans are often confused for the better known lychee fruit because they both have red exterior shells and white, milky insides that are oval in shape. Rambutan fruit are native to Malaysia and Indonesia.

Called “NgoR” in Thai, this golf-sized, tiny red fruit is covered with “Velcro” hairs and when cracked open by squeezing it between your palms, reveals a seed covered with white and translucent texture.
