It was delicious! I spotted a strange, spiky-looking fruit in the produce aisle and one of the workers let me sample it. It looks a bit like a hard-boiled egg, is very sweet and squishy. I highly recommend trying one!

11-01-2007, 09:31 PM
SORRY! Im a vegan too, it was just the only way I could think of.

They remind me of Lychees too...
Funny, one time when I was rummaging through a pile at a store...several people came up to me asking all kinds of questions about them, others passing by with looks of "what is that??" haha

They appeared at my local Trader Joe's health food store a few days ago.
It's so funny that you just posted, because I was thinking about them. Now I'll need to pick up a package.

Whoa! I think there's a tree of those at my school! I was wondering what that fruit was...I thought it looked like a lychee but not quite :)

If you haven't tried them yet you DEFINITELY should as soon as possible!

If you want a real treat, try making rambutan and ginger icecream. Use a cashew base, experiment with the amount of ginger until you get the taste you want.
If you live near to a Hispanic or Asian market also try soursop and ginger icecream with a cashew base (in South American countries it's known as guanabana).
They are basic cashew icecream recipes on here, so just modify.
I don't have a specific recipe, do it to suit your taste buds, taste as you go.

Bumping this up b/c I recently saw these in the store and my DD begged for one. WOW was it fun fruit or what! It looks like a soft porcupine and it's melon-like inside. Yum!

It looks like lychee.
Are they sweet or do they have a bland taste?

They are beautiful! I hope it's really sweet...
