The sweet, translucent flesh contains a large seed in the middle, which is generally considered inedible. The seed can either be removed with a knife or spat out after eating the flesh.
Rambutan originated in the Malaysian−Indonesian region, and has been widely cultivated in southeast Asia areas such as Thailand, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines (Tindall et al., 1994). Rambutan is also widely cultivated in Hawaii and Australia.
Paclobutrazol sprayed at 1.5 mM is the optimum concentration to produce the highest yield (9.7 ton/ha) followed by SADH sprayed at 45.0, 15.0 mM and paclobutrazol at 4.5 mM, respectively.
Rambutans are rich in vitamin C, which is a potent antioxidant. Consuming antioxidants helps fight off free radicals, which are waste products in your body that can damage your cells. Antioxidants have been shown to reduce cellular damage and potentially reduce the risk of cancer Read more
Rambutan phenology is described under seven principal growth stages namely bud, leaf, and shoot development, inflorescence emergence, flowering, fruit development, and fruit maturity according to the extended BBCH-scale.
Rambutan Tree Care Fertilize with a food that is 55g potash, 115g phosphate, and 60g urea at six months and again at one year of age. At two years old, fertilize with a food that is 165g potash, 345g phosphate, and 180g urea. At the Read more
Caring for Rambutan Trees Provide 1 inch of water each week in the absence of rain. Potted rambutans should be watered whenever the soil feels dry below the surface. Run water into the pot until it trickles from the drainage hole at the base. Reduce Read more
Rambutan cannot be chosen for multiple cropping, as its yield is based on the availability of sunlight. The more sunlight the tree gets, the more yield it gives. Also it need proper irrigation and fertilisation. When the first leaves turn green, provide equal amount of Read more
Foliage that turns brown only at its tips can indicate a watering problem, either too much water or too little. Tip burn can also indicate over fertilizing or a nutrient deficiency.
The flesh of the rambutan fruit is safe to eat. However, its peel and seeds may be toxic when eaten raw or in very large amounts.
Rambutan fruit trees bear fruit that is indeed hairy in appearance. The fruit, or berry, is oval-shaped with a single seed. The outer peel is reddish or sometimes orange or yellow and covered with malleable, fleshy spines. The interior flesh is white to pale pink Read more
To grow rambutan from seed, plant the seed flat in a small pot with drainage holes and filled with organic soil amended with sand and organic compost. The transplanted tree should be placed in a ceramic, not plastic, pot in soil that is one part Read more
The fresh fruit are easily bruised and have a limited shelf life. An average tree may produce 5,000–6,000 or more fruit (60–70 kg or 130–155 lb per tree).
They thrive in temps from 71 to 86 degrees F. (21-30 C.), and even a few days of temps below 50 degrees F. (10 C.) will kill these heat lovers.
Rambutans can also grow in full sun, but ensure there is shade protection. Enrich the soil with Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser. If the soil is clay based, improve soil structure by adding gypsum and forking in well. Dig the planting hole Read more

Rambutan is perennial plant that can survive more than 20 years in the wild.
in partial sun for 13 hours a day. If you live in an area with this climate and want to move the tree into the garden, leave 32 feet (10 m.) between trees and the soil needs to be 2 to 3 yards (2-3 m.)
In rambutan fruit, the sequence of nutrient removal is as follows: nitrogen>potassium>calcium>magnesium>phosphorus (N>K>Ca>Mg>P). Our crop nutrient monitoring studies show that rambutan requires more N and K than P especially during fruit development.
GENERAL RAMBUTAN IRRIGATION RECOMMENDATIONS Irrigate frequently during fruit filling (daily and possibly twice daily). Apply longer irrigations once a week to maintain adequate moisture levels at depth. Use a light mulch to improve water retention at the soil surface. Keep the area under the tree Read more
Thus rambutans require cross-pollination to ensure a good harvest. It is a non-climacteric fruit, which must be harvested fully mature (when the fruit changes from green to yellow or red, depending on the variety).
The rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum) originated in Malaysia. It can only grow outdoors in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 10a and above, according to the National Gardening Association.
Also, rambutan trees like to stay moist. To grow rambutan from seed, plant the seed flat in a small pot with drainage holes and filled with organic soil amended with sand and organic compost. Place the seed in the dirt and lightly cover with soil. Read more
rambutan is sustainable. Rambutan production is relatively sustainable since there is no known significant damage to air, water, land, soil, forests, etc. as long as pesticides have not been used.
The rambutan is a perennial tree cultivated extensively in S.E. Asia for its edible fruits. The white translucent, subacid-sweet flavored aril is edible flesh of the fruit.
In Hawaii rambutan flowers twice a year during the months of March-May and July-August in response to two short periods of dry weather followed by occasional showers . Two flowering periods can also occur in Malaysia from March-May and August-October depending on the prevailing climatic Read more
Though rambutan grows upto a height of 80 feet, prune the branches at 10-15 feet. This will help to protect the fruits from birds by covering it with nets.
Favorable climate and soil requirement for growing Rambutan The Rambutan tree does best on deep, clay-loam or rich sandy loam rich in organic matter, or in deep peat and it needs good drainage. Rambutan tree grows well in a warm tropical climate.
Loam soil is the best for rambutan. Grafted saplings can be used for planting. Dig holes that have 3 feet length, width and depth. There should be a distance of 40 feet between two trees.
Bearing trees The NPK granular fertiliser should be chloride free as rambutan is extremely sensitive to chloride levels higher than 0.018%. Chloride toxicity is usually characterised by yellowing of leaves and death of leaf margins and tips, often accompanied by defoliation of young leaves.
Keep the tree damp and humidity at 75 to 80 percent in a temperature at around 80 degrees F. (26 C.) in partial sun for 13 hours a day.
An annual rambutan fair is held during August harvest time. In Malaysia, rambutan flowers from March to July and again between June and November, usually in response to rain following a dry period. Flowering periods differ for other localities.
No. Allergies to rambutan are rare, though the fruit may trigger a reaction in people who have Oral Allergy Syndrome, an allergy that causes reactions to foods with similar protein structures to pollen.
Rambutan tree is used to lots of water, however, they are also used to well-drained soil, so their water requirements are different for potted plants.
Rambutan (/ræmˈbuːtən/; taxonomic name: Nephelium lappaceum) is a medium-sized tropical tree in the family Sapindaceae. The name also refers to the edible fruit produced by this tree. The rambutan is native to Southeast Asia.
tall and still fragile, so it is better to repot it than actually put it in the ground. The transplanted tree should be placed in a ceramic, not plastic, pot in soil that is one part each of sand, vermiculite, and peat to create good Read more
Rambutan is a cross pollinated crop and depends on insects for pollination and fruit set (Free, 1993; Zee, 1993). Aromatic rambutan flowers are highly attractive to many insects like bees (Apis spp and Trigona spp.), butterflies, and flies (Eristalis spp. and Lucilia spp.)
Two types of trees can be found: males (inflorescences bearing only male flowers, and so not producing any fruits) and hermaphrodites. Certain varieties bear both these types of hermaphrodite flowers, but not simultaneously on the same inflorescence. Thus rambutans require cross-pollination to ensure a good Read more
