Ok, sure I'll try one but I won't be covering it . I have the perfect spot with protection for the wind.

Another way to help with outdoor conditions is to try encircling the plants in-ground with buffers that you don't mind sacrificing - for instance, you could try circling the young rambutans with banana mats, so the outer bananas could take the brunt of the harsh sun and dry wind, and the interior of the plants would be moist and humid and have good soil, which you can keep adding to with old leaves from the bananas. That is one way to create a super-micro climate in your yard, which should help to stabilize temperatures a bit, and keep humidity in around the rambutan, if you really want to prove that you can grow the plants successfully in-ground, rather than in a pot or greehouse-type situation.
