Phuket - Thailand - Thai Fruit


Thailand has a most diverse growth of fruits, and in Phuket you will be able to find them all, some are seasonal and can only be found at these times, some can be grown all year around, and are constantly available. The most common tourist fruits would be Pineapple, Water Melon, Pappaya, Coconut, Mango and Guava. But other fruits are also available, and sold in carts all around the island. Make sure to sample as many of the fruits as you possible can, to find your favorite. We would definitely recommend you to try Lynchee, Rambutan and Pemelo.

Phuket was formerly referred to as "Thalang," derived from the old Malay "Telong" which means "Cape". The northern district of the province, which was the location of the old capital, still uses this name.
