The rambutan fruit is rich in many vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant compounds. Its flesh provides around 1.3–2 grams of total fiber per 3.5 ounces (100 grams) — similar to what you would find in the same quantity of apples, oranges or pears. It’s also rich in vitamin C, a nutrient that helps your body absorb dietary iron more easily. This vitamin also acts as an antioxidant, protecting your body’s cells against damage. Eating 5–6 rambutan fruit will meet 50% of your daily vitamin C needs. Rambutan also contains a good amount of copper, which plays a role in the proper growth and maintenance of various cells, including those of your bones, brain and heart. It offers smaller amounts of manganese, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, iron and zinc as well. Eating 3.5 ounces (100 grams) — or about four fruit — will meet 20% of your daily copper needs and 2–6% of the daily recommended amount of the other nutrients.

The rambutan peel and seed are thought to be rich sources of nutrients, antioxidants and other beneficial compounds. Though some people eat them, neither are currently considered edible.

In fact, they appear to contain certain compounds that may be toxic to humans.

Sweet Hairy Fruit: Rambutan Production is a five-module course that discusses varieties, crop establishment, cultural management practices, harvest and post-harvest management, and cost-and-return analysis.

This course is developed in collaboration with Quezon National Agricultural School (QNAS).
