Keep the tree damp and humidity at 75 to 80 percent in a temperature at around 80 degrees F. (26 C.) in partial sun for 13 hours a day.
Bearing trees The NPK granular fertiliser should be chloride free as rambutan is extremely sensitive to chloride levels higher than 0.018%. Chloride toxicity is usually characterised by yellowing of leaves and death of leaf margins and tips, often accompanied by defoliation of young leaves.
An annual rambutan fair is held during August harvest time. In Malaysia, rambutan flowers from March to July and again between June and November, usually in response to rain following a dry period. Flowering periods differ for other localities.
No. Allergies to rambutan are rare, though the fruit may trigger a reaction in people who have Oral Allergy Syndrome, an allergy that causes reactions to foods with similar protein structures to pollen.
Rambutan tree is used to lots of water, however, they are also used to well-drained soil, so their water requirements are different for potted plants.
Rambutan (/ræmˈbuːtən/; taxonomic name: Nephelium lappaceum) is a medium-sized tropical tree in the family Sapindaceae. The name also refers to the edible fruit produced by this tree. The rambutan is native to Southeast Asia.
tall and still fragile, so it is better to repot it than actually put it in the ground. The transplanted tree should be placed in a ceramic, not plastic, pot in soil that is one part each of sand, vermiculite, and peat to create good Read more
Rambutan is a cross pollinated crop and depends on insects for pollination and fruit set (Free, 1993; Zee, 1993). Aromatic rambutan flowers are highly attractive to many insects like bees (Apis spp and Trigona spp.), butterflies, and flies (Eristalis spp. and Lucilia spp.)
Two types of trees can be found: males (inflorescences bearing only male flowers, and so not producing any fruits) and hermaphrodites. Certain varieties bear both these types of hermaphrodite flowers, but not simultaneously on the same inflorescence. Thus rambutans require cross-pollination to ensure a good Read more
