Sampling from the fruit vendors in Matram, Lombok
Deposited on a street corner in Mataram, Lombok without a map, we found ourselves wandering down the streets of what we thought was a small town, but in fact is a city of 400,00+. My companion was a dedicated forager and in no time was picking pods from trees and bartering with vendors for half a dozen of the pod like fruit they were hawking from carts on the street. These rambutan were more edible than most to my western palate.
