Do you own a Rambutan tree?
I've been trying to grow Rambutans for many years now, but they don't seem to have done anything much except having some growth in the hotter months and then dropping almost all of their leaves when the cold weather arrives.
I'm just very curious if anyone here in the mainland ever successfully grown the plant to fruition. It would be interesting to hear from you what you have or have not done to make it a success to grow the plant here. I don't suppose having a greenhouse will help either because I have been bringing all the young plants in when the weather gets cold. Therefore, it would seem to me that there just aren't enough of a hot days here to set off their normal growth rate. I'd like to find out more before I finally give up growing these plants. I've heard there's a cousin of the Rambutan that goes by the name of Pulasan and it's supposed to be more cold hardy. Anyone here familiar with it? I'd appreciate any feedback here.
