Thailand is not just known for its street foods like Khao Mun Gai or Steamed Chicken on Rice and its traditional dishes like Som Tum or Spicy Green Papaya Salad. It’s also known for its wide range of fresh fruits.
Some of the best fruits in Thailand include Mango or Ma-Muang, a sweet-tasting fruit that also makes for a wonderful juice drink; Rambutan or Ngor, a hairy fruit with white flesh inside; Pineapple or Sapparod, a fruit grown all year round and planted under sandy soil from the seashore; and Dragon Fruit or Gao Mung Gorn, a cactus-like fruit that also makes for a wonderful dessert food.
