Mangosteen, also known as mankuut, comes into season around Noi naa's birthday. I first fell in love with it when I came for her birth.


So far, and mind you, we are only halfway through day four in Thailand, we have eaten mangosteen, lychee, pineapple, guava, green mango, regular ripe mango, apple, watermelon, jackfruit, sham-poo (like a small pear), dragon fruit, and rambutan.

All fresh and kilos and kilos of the stuff.

Part of it may be because we are spending a lot of time lounging around the house because of 1) record heat 2) still jetlagging 3) political protesting may be escalating starting today (although we feel very removed and safe here in this area).

Dragonfruit is aptly named. It comes with white flesh, or the wilder variety, which has crimson flesh.


A bowl of dragonfruit a day keeps the constipation away.


P.S. Last summer’s post on Thailand fruit here.
