Pulasan tropical fruit that is closely related to the rambutan and sometimes confused with it. Usually eaten fresh, it is sweeter than the rambutan and lychee, but very rare outside Southeast Asia.

The name pulasan comes from the Malay word pulas (twist) related to "pilas" (remove) of Tagalog. The fruit is opened through the act of twisting the fruit with both hands, thus the name pulasan.

While very similar to rambutan, the fruit lacks the hairy spines. The flesh is very sweet and juicy, and separates easily from the seed, much more easily than the rambutan. In addition, unlike the seed of the rambutan, the seed of the pulasan is readily edible raw. It has a flavour somewhat similar to that of almonds.
