There are different variants of the rambutan. What i like best is the “maharlika” variant because all the fruit is peeled off from the seed like the pic you see below.

This is what it looks like on the inside:

Current Prices: P30.00 to P45.00  per kilo

Its the same as this fruit called Pulasan which is found in Malaysia. The only difference is the outer “shell” which is harder than that of the rambutan.

Pineapple and banana is quite common here and anywhere so no special mention on these fruits.. heheheh

You can also buy these fruits in Manila… but double the price! Well that’s due to transport cost actually. You can also buy them in supermarkets packed and ready to eat..

    for cheaper fruit prices try the bankerohan and agdao public markets. they are even cheaper when sold by sidewalk vendors than those in the market stalls. davao is indeed a fruit haven…or is it heaven?

    Hi,
    Is that possible to purchase durian & lansones and send to me here in Palawan. We can wire the money first then you can ship it to me by cargo.
    Please advise!
    Thank you,
    Sharon
