Dear On Delay Blog Readers,
We are requesting your help in identifying this fruit.
When we left Trinidad, our friend Harripaul gave us some beautiful pomelos straight from his tree. He also gave us a fruit which he had bought from a friend who is growing exotic fruit from Asia Pacific where the climate is similar to Trinidad’s. (For example, rambutan native to Malaysia and Indonesia has recently been introduced and is doing well; local rambutan was for sale in the supermarket and Harripaul has recently bought a little rambutan tree for his garden.)
Rambutan we know; but the fruit is new to us. We are offering a prize to the first reader who correctly identifies this fruit.
