Its not a secret that I am one big fruit junkie. Watermelons, peaches, grapes, cherries, pineapples, just name it....I love them ALL:-) So on my trip to Thailand I was very curious to meet&taste some more exotic to me fruits. And it was not very difficult! Bangkok markets are simply a fruit paradise: rambutan (first picture), jackfruit (second picture:being cut, third picture: right, already prepacked for sale), mangosteen (fourth picture) are just few of all yummy things I tasted (and purchased).
This is how the mangosteen (top plate left), love apple and guava (top plate right), dragon fruit (down right) and rambutan look when they are ready to be eaten.-)
There are several different mango sorts and the ones below are ones of the best mangoes I have ever tried...Next on the list "to try" is the famous Thai fruit "durian" (in the left corner on the last picture). It supposed to be pretty stinky and one either loves it or hates it...I am curious:-)
