rambutan A guilty pleasure of mine is tropical fruit–– It comes from far away (think all those  air miles) and nearly all have inedible peel which means that the sugar in the fruit is faster acting in your body...  Regardless I adore tropical fruit and eat it whenever I have the chance.  On a trip to Eden Center yesterday we picked up a box of rambutan that taste similar to lychee nuts but not quite as sweet.  In New York in the spring and early summer you can buy them from street vendors in Chinatown.
