Where do rambutans come from?
The rambutan is one of the most popular fruits in South-East Asia. That is where we source our EAT ME fruits. The fruit grows on trees that can reach up to 20 metres high. These trees do not produce fruit for the first 4 years. Rambutans grow in bunches. They are also harvested in bunches, to avoid damaging the fragile fruits.
