Ave, Jelly!

Inspired by this post of Jelly's, I went out and bought a can of morn rambutan stuffed with pineapple. I need to find me some lychee fruit again, because for the life of me, I don't know that I can taste the difference between the two. Part of the problem may be that my experience with both fruits extends only to the canned varieties. The canning process probably deadens a lot of the flavor.

To me, lychee taste like a cross between pineapple and a grape. Are lychee and rambutan different? I thought they were one and the same. They look very similar.

PS: Lychee is great for maintaining blood pressure (lowering it).

So we went to lunch yesterday and they had both fresh rambutan and lychee for desert. I couldn't taste much difference myself but my wife insists that the rambutan had a distinct taste whereas the lychee was just sweet...
