Another fruit...the Pulasan.

It is about fruit again. This time it is about the fruit as shown in the images above. We call it Pulasan. It look like the Rambutan, where the Rambutan has hairy skin, the Pulasan has a short hair like a crew cut. Anyway the flesh inside this fruits is exactly like that of the Rambutan. It also taste the same. Well, I not sure whether there is an English name for this fruit. But if translated into English it would be call Twist. For Pulas is Twist in English. I believe this fruit got it name because to open it you had to twist it, unlike the Rambutan you do not have to twist to open it. You open the Rambutan by piercing using your fingers of both hands. As for the Pulasan you have to twist it using your fingers of both hands. I would just leave it to the world to call what it like. Like Rambutan, this fruit is also in season now. It is as delicious as the Rambutan.. Well it is time to enjoy this Pulasan. It is another nature gift to us. Have a nice day.

Pak Idrus,
I discovered pulasan when I was at a boarding school when one of the girls returned from first semester break with a bagful of pulasan.

anasalwa, thanks for the visit and your short history of U and the Pulasan. In those days Pulasan could not be easily found, thus only available from folks who have a dusun. Now it is commercially plant and we get if often when in season. Have a nice day.
