Rambutans are small, oval to round fruits with a semi-thick, firm, and leathery rind covered in soft, spine-like protrusions known as spinterns. They are aromatic and have a sweet, fruity flavor with mild acidity, with subtle notes of strawberries and grapes. Raw rambutan is best eaten raw, without the seed. The seed is edible, but it must be cooked before eating.
