Exotic, sweet and bizarre – looking rambutan

Looks like a lychee, tastes like a lychee but no, it is not a lychee.  It is a deliciously sweet fruit from the Malay Archipielago where it is harvested twice a year, June to August and December to January. 

The Archipielago is a vast chain of islands stretching eastward from Sumatra to many thousand kilometers which most of it now falls within the sovereignties of Malaysia and Indonesia.  

It is the land of the orangutan, the land of the bird of paradise, and an array of butterfly species. 

 What more can we travelers ask from this fascinating place?
