2. How to plant rambutan tree?
firstly, prepare your planting materials. Select
well-developed seeds from mature/ripe fruits of
the recommended varieties or selections.
Remove mucilage from the seeds by rubbing them
with fine sawdust, ash or old newspaper.
Germinate the seeds immediately after extraction
in light loamy soils or in germination beds made
up of sawdust.
Germinated seeds should be ready for
potting in 24 days after sowing. Transfer
them to perforated plastic bags containing
garden soil and place them in nursery shed.
Water the seedlings after transferring. Then,
water every 2-3 days as the need arises.
The rootstocks would be ready for asexual
propagation in 8-12 months.
4. What is the difference between root
in cactus with root in rambutan ?
Rambutan has fibrous root while cactus has
water and food storage root which is a
tough layer of tissue surrounding the stems
of cacti and special substances within the
storage cells located inside the stems
further reduce loss of water.
Most fruit trees need water to fruit no
matter how fertile your soil is. During the
dry months, make sure that the trees don’t
suffer from drought. Irrigate the trees.
During the rainy months, however, make
sure the orchard is properly drained. The
dry season should not last over 3 months.
The tree does best on deep, clay-loam or rich sandy
loam rich in organic matter, or in deep peat. It needs
It is recommended that the trees be planted at least
33 ft (10 m) apart each way, though 40 ft (12 m) is not
too much in rich soil. If the trees are set too close to
each other, they will become overcrowded in a few
years and production will be seriously affected.
Rambutan is a tropical fruit tree best grown in the
temperature range between 22C to 35C, with 2000 to
3000 mm of well distributed rainfall. It is intolerant to
frost, especially during the juvenile stage. Mature
trees may survive a brief period of temperatures as
low as 4C but with severe defoliation. It prefers clay
loam soil, pH 5 to 6.5, but can be grown in a wide
range of soil types, even ones with poor drainage, but
not water-logged. Flower induction is independent
from photo period, but can be induced by water
stress. Low relative humidity and wind during fruiting
could cause excessive moisture loss from fruit
spinterns and result in poor fruit appearance.
Rambutan trees should be sheltered
from strong winds which do much
damage during the flowering and
