  Opening the rambutan
The word "rambut" in the fruit name 'rambutan' is Malay for 'hairy,' and this refers to the spiky rind.
Indeed, without the soft spines on the rind, the rambutan would resemble the lychee (or litchee) which is in the same botanical family.
In addition, the edible proportion inside each rambutan fruit may be reduced in the seedling due to typically smaller outside diameters combined with medium to large seeds.
