      Thank you very much for your kind words. 🙂

      We’re very happy that far from home our boy meets such beautiful, nice and generous people like all of you.

    This is Maddy shopping, not marry. Sorry!

    Ok, here is the name of this furry strawberry – Momon chino (in English this fruit is known as Rambutan and is native to Indonesia).

    It is closely related to lychee. The best way to tackle eating this fruit is to bite off a piece of the skin and peel it from there. The edible part is the glimmering white oval ball on the inside which one can pop in their mouth to gently suck the flesh off the pit. This is where the name “mamón” comes from, translated loosely as “sucking”. The second half of the fruits name, “chino” is due to the fact that these fruits are hailed from Malaysia. The fruit itself is slightly sweet with a hint of sourness, particularly when not yet fully ripened. Some people like to freeze them for a nice cold snack on hot days.
