I like jackfruit as my number one favorite fruit. It is a tropical fruit which can only be found in most Asian countries. The fruit is bright yellow and the taste is very sweet. I think you will like it if you got the chance to taste it. I like oranges and grapes too, but they are a bit sour and I prefer totally sweet fruits.

Strawberries contain a range of nutrients, with vitamin C heading the group. They also contain significant levels of phytonutrients and antioxidants, which fight free radicals. These antioxidant properties are believed to be linked to what makes the strawberry bright red. So what are these weird free radicals? Free radicals are elements that can damage cells, and they are thought to contribute to the formation of many kinds of cancer. In addition to vitamin C, strawberries also provide an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese, as well as folic acid, potassium, riboflavin, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, copper, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids. I love strawberries!

Hello icon!(",) I'm a fruit lover! This time of the year there are many delicious fruits around. I love eating rambutan, lanzones, mango and mangosteen. My all time favorite is banana.(",) You can make it into a banana split or banana shake. There were times when I had my banana with rice.(",) Yummy! Great day!

rambutan - The rambutan (IPA: [ram'bu.t??n], Nephelium lappaceum) is a medium-sized tropical tree in the family Sapindaceae, and the fruit of this tree. It is probably native to southeast Asia, although its precise natural distribution is unknown. It is closely related to several other edible tropical fruits including the Lychee, Longan and Mamoncillo. It is believed to be native to the Malay Archipelago where the name quite literally means "hairy." In Costa Rica and Nicaragua, it is known as mamón chino.

It is an evergreen tree growing to a height of 10-20 m tall.

The leaves are alternate, 10-30 cm long, pinnate, with 3-11 leaflets, each leaflet 5-15 cm long and 3-10 cm broad, with an entire margin.

The flowers are small, 2.5-5 mm, apetalous, discoidal, and borne in erect terminal panicles 15-30 cm long.

Rambutan trees are either male (producing only staminate flowers and, hence, produce no fruit), female (producing flowers that are only functionally female), or hermaphroditic (producing flowers that are female with a small percentage of male flowers).

The fruit is a round to oval drupe 3-6 cm (rarely to 8 cm) long and 3-4 cm broad, borne in a loose pendant cluster of 10-20 together. The leathery skin is reddish (rarely orange or yellow), and covered with fleshy pliable spines, hence the name rambutan, derived from the Malay word rambut which means hairs. The fruit flesh is translucent, whitish or very pale pink, with a sweet, mildly acidic flavour.

The single seed is glossy brown, 2-3 cm long, with a white basal scar; it is bad-tasting(sort of like vomit and tuna) and should not be eaten with the fruit flesh.
Hi icon!(",) Thanks for giving me the best response though I feel undeserving of it but a million thanks indeed!(",) Since you are asking about what is rambutan, I'll show you a picture of it and describe it also. I don't know the English term but I'll try to research. The rambutan (IPA:[ram'bu.t??n], Nephelium lappaceum) is a medium-sized tropical tree in the family Sapindaceae, and the fruit of this tree. It is probably native to southeast Asia, although its precise natural distribution is unknown.
