Rambutan

120816
     This fruit, covered with something which looks like chestnut bur or thick hair, is in season twice in Sri Lanka: from the end of June to August and from December to January. An office staff gave me some as there is a good crop this year.

     Do you know there is also a yellow variety, not only the red one? They are about the same size. Both are juicy and very tasty though, I feel like the red one tastes stronger.

     Several days later, the staff was absent from work for a few days due to coughing and a high fever. When I asked him how he was feeling after his getting better, he said, “I ate rambutans too much, that’s why I got a cold.” It is quite common to say in that manner in this country, isn’t it?
