Dragonfruit is the most disappointing tropical fruit. Looks so good and exotic but not much taste at all.

I prefer rambutan over mangosteen......
I'm the opposite. I prefer mangosteen over rambutan. I hate it that the peel from the pit is sticking to the flesh. Done used to say that only happens if the fruit was previously frozen. Not sure how true that is.

yeah, I also don't like the skin of the pit sticking to the flesh.....no, it doesn't only happen when the fruit was previously frozen. I have had fresh rambutan in Thailand...same thing...

You haven't tried the golden dragonfruit. It is significantly sweeter and tastier and the seeds in it are crunchier like it has been fried. lol

There are 2 types of Rambutan that can be purchased here. Find the variety that's slightly smaller in size and the hairy stuff is much shorter. These Rambutans are juicier, sweeter and the peel from the pit doesn't stick to the fruity flesh.

Leave room for the Langsat fruit as well. Those stuff are addiction!

Lots of Chinese/Vietnamese supermarkets sell mangosteen.
Hong Tai Supermarket in Scarborough sells them on discount from time to time.

I've only had langsat a few times while visiting Canada since we don't have that here as well. I bought a big pack and left it in the hotel fridge for a day. I didn't realise the temp was so low that the top shelf was so cold it's frozen. After a day on the desk, they all turned black. What a waste.

We have fresh rambutan (at least they look fresh still in boxes). How can I tell if they are the variety with the shorter hair you guys are talking about?
