The rambutan fruit is definitely something that most of us have eaten before seeing as it’s widely available here and is one of our local fruits. However, it looks like Westerners found its hairy appearance rather strange and this is probably why one of our favourite fruits was deemed worthy enough to be an “extraterrestrial fruit.”

In a tweet that has gone viral, a Malaysian Twitter user shared a short clip of a Netflix series showing two characters on-screen exploring a moon. The space exploration members are shown discovering an extraterrestrial fruit and decide to experiment by eating it. 

If you think that the “alien fruit” looks really familiar, that’s because it’s rambutan, our beloved tropical fruit that almost everyone knows in Southeast Asia.

What’s even funnier is that in that episode, before they actually ate the fruit, the characters also dabbed some on their hands to determine whether the fruit is poisonous or causes any irritation. Okay, the rambutan may look slightly strange if you haven’t seen it before but does it really look like it belongs on an alien world?

Naturally, netizens were amused that the rambutan was “alien” enough to be featured as an extraterrestrial fruit. Some of them who have lived near rambutan orchards even jokingly said that they must be living on the moon. A few others suggested other fruits that might seem alien to Western people, such as the starfruit or durians while some pointed out that the man was holding the fruit like a lip balm to the women’s lips.

Apparently, the Netflix series is known as “Another Life”, which was released on 25th July 2019. The series, which features Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair, is about an astronaut and a space crew who need to investigate an alien artefact that mysteriously appeared on Earth. They attempt to search for extraterrestrial life but encounter inexplicable horrors that put their mission in jeopardy.

While the rambutan’s hairy appearance may look strange to some, to us it still tastes awesome!
