Rambutan

Found this grape-like Malaysian fruit at the local Asian market. What a wonderful way to brighten the season!

The name “rambutan” is derived from the Malay word rambut meaning "hair", a reference to the numerous hairy protuberances of the fruit. Similarly, in Vietnam, it is called chôm chôm meaning "messy hair". (from Wikipedia)
