Hi, everyone!

At the moment there are many different kinds of fruit in season here in Thailand.

果物の王様、持ち込み禁止!?

Even with the husk intact, this notorious Asian fruit has such a potent stench that it’s banned in most enclosed public forms of transport. A well known food writer once wrote written “its odor is best described as…turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away.

If you get into a taxi or a bus, you will often see this sign…

Actually, although it smells bad, it tastes not too bad at all, with a texture like custard and tastes something like strong cheese. They are very expensive at about 2500 yen per fruit.

 

他にもあります、トロピカルフルーツをご紹介!

可愛いフォルムの果物の女王

Now the queen of fruit is a different thing altogether.  It is the mangosteen and is completely opposite to the Durian.  It is small, it is very sweet and refreshing, and the texture is like that of a banana with small pips inside. I could eat a thousand of them, they are awesome.

ライチの親戚ランブータン!

Another fruit that is currently in season which is very nice to eat is the rambutan.  Rambutans look like hairy sea eggs, but once opened they look and taste something like lychees.  They are delicious to eat especially chilled and go well with ice cream or just eaten alone as well.

一番人気の王道マンゴー

Then of course is my favourite fruit the mango, which can be eaten green and sour or when ripe yellow, soft and sweet.  The texture of these is like eating butter, they just melt in your mouth – they are delectable! Everybody eats these, and I haven’t come across one person who doesn’t like them yet. These are worth about 50 yen each so they are a cheap and healthy option to go for!

I will go and buy some today and get stuck into them for breakfast!
