Ya, I am also curious to know what fruit it is. Does the seed look like a longan seed? Please take a photo of the seed too and show us. Thank you.
Never seen or heard of anything like this before!
Never seen this before... I bet the taste is good. Is it a local fruit?
Locally grown ones. Not bad, quite nice...but I'm not really into these...or rambutans, for that matter.
The shell looks like a bigger version of longan but the fruits looks like rambutan, interesting!
they are so big
posted pic of its seed. :)
yes. as confirmed by STP.
yes. and I having fun opening the shells more than eating them. lol
yes. never seen a big longan before. haha
do they have season too?
To me, these fruits taste like longan.I don't like longan but I like rambutan.
Thank you Rose for the photo of its seed. The seed does not look like longan at all.From STP's info, I did a google search and found the name of this fruit. The local people called it Brazil or Brazilian longan but its actual name is "Pometia pinnata" ,Fijian Longan or also known as Matoa.Info from this linkhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/xping/2054843428/
