The Rambutan is a fruit grown primarily in Southeast Asia, and is cousin to the longan and thelychee. It grows on trees that are 10-20 feet (3.05-6.1 m) high. The trees are prized in landscapingbecause they are evergreens.
The rambutan produces two crops each year, a smaller crop in mid-spring and a larger crop in late fall. Not all rambutan trees produce crops, because some trees are male. Some trees are hermaphrodites, producing both male and female blossoms, while others are exclusively female. The hermaphrodite tree is the most prized.
The blossoms on the rambutan have a sweet aroma and are often used in flower arrangements. They are white or green in color, and some difference exists between the male and female flower. Cross-pollination is necessary in female trees, or the tree will produce no fruit. However, bees are attracted by the quality of nectar in rambutan blooms, so this generally poses no significant problem in a large orchard.
