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.

On April 10, 1689, the French general Desfarges led an expedition to re-capture the island of Phuket in an attempt to restore some sort of French control in Siam. The occupation of the island led nowhere, and Desfarges returned to Pondicherry in January 1690.
