Chom chom is a Vietnamese term for rambutan. A rambutan tree has broad foliage and many branches. In the southern provinces of Vietname, the tree yields fruit at the beginning of the rainy season. The rambutan season lasts until the end of the rainy season (from May to October). The skin of this fruit is tough, thick and hairy. Its meat is transparent white and tender, and has a cool sweet taste in the mouth. The most reputed rambutan fruit nation-wide is grown in Binh Hoa Phuoc Village (Long Ho District, Vinh Long Province), some 50km north of Ho Chi Minh City. During the rambutan season one can notice the typical bright red colour of rambutan fruit stands located in the markets, along road and at intersections throughout the southern provinces.
