10 Bizarre Fruits You Should Be Eating

Apples and oranges might be great, but there are other fruits worth your time too! Despite their questionable exteriors (and interiors in some cases), there are plenty of weird-looking fruits packed with all kinds of nutritional benefits and new tastes. Shake up your daily fruit routine with one of these unusual choices, and your body will thank you. Plus, you may find some new seasonal favorites that you'll look forward to!

1 of 10 Rambutan

These spiky red, orange, and yellow fruits look like the tops of the Truffula trees from Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. Rambutan is actually native to Malaysia and Indonesia, and it packs a serious punch when it comes to vitamins. Inside the strange-looking skin is the white or yellow fruit itself. Rambutan’s center is similar to a grape and has about 40% of your daily intake of vitamin C in a 100-gram portion. In addition to vitamin C, rambutan is also a great source of iron (13% to 31% of your daily intake) and phosphorus (4% of your daily intake). Rambutan can be eaten raw, but it can also be stewed with sugar and cloves for a warm treat. Be careful though -- at the center of the fruit is a seed about the size of a cherry pit.
