Thanks for the info Ethan.

Soon, I will try Mango on marula, just waiting for the weather to get a little better. The Canopus star (Suhail Star) can be easily seen by the naked eye and arrived earlier than I expected so the winter will arrive early too.

The rambutan is a well accepted commercial fruit. It is widely liked. So it's good to try to grow it out of it's normal range. But getting to commercial stage, if it is possible at all, would take decades of development, not 2 years.

What exactly has to happen during decades of development for rambutan to become commercial crop in FL ?
It's not just for Florida. If you look at history of commercialization of fruit crops in any area, they don't happen in a couple of years. Most important is trials of varieties to see what kind of production can be achieved, and this takes a long time. Then comes marketing aspect...getting consumers aware of the fruit and wanting to buy it. This usually takes a lot of advertising and lots of free samples.

How many leaves on the tree has the damage that is shown by your picture? 
Dwarf Hawaiin is a "re-name" of what was originally known as Tete Nene or Tete-de-Nene in Puerto Rico.
