    Looks a bit like a rambutan - most of which are red, bit they can come in all sorts of colours from yellow to orange to green the usual red. What inside those pods?

    Not a Rambutan, we have them too, the red spiky fruit is heart shaped.

    I don't have a name for it, google images comes up with a couple of exotics try this, Lipstick tree (Bixa orellana).

    If you find a post of mine that is missing a pic that you'd like to see, let me know & I'll see if I can find a copy.
