Sumario: The study wasconducted with the rambutan (Nephelium  lappaceum)cultivars R-134, R-162, R-167, Jitlee and Rongrien. Allcultivars showed red oval fruits with spines, which turned redlater than the rind did. The fruit weigth (32.7 to 37.3 g), fleshper fruit (40.8 to 51.9%), Brix (18.3 to 18.6) and the easilyflesh removal from the seed, agreed with the qualitystandards for fresh fruit export or canning. The N was themost abundant nutrient in the fruit (77 to 87 mg), followed indecreasing order by K (63 to 81 mg), Ca (22 to 31 mg), P (11to 13 mg), Mg (9 to 13 mg) and S (4 to 6). The contents ofFe, Cu, Zn, Mn and B were small (lower than 0,38 mg).
