There are so many nice fruits.

So what to do?

Look up statistics and be surprised(?):

Longan (ลำไย, Lam Yai) is by far the fruit with the highest production and exports.

Followed in production by Durian, Mangosteen, Lychee, Rambutan, Mango, Pummelo, Pinneapple.

I would vote against Mango and Pineapple as they are not really typiclal for Thailand but very widespread all over the tropical world.

To be honest: I don't know a "national" fruit which would grow only in Thailand.

But at least longan is a "southeastasian fruit".

According to wiki, there is no national fruit, and only 6 national symbols officially recognized.

biggrin.png Then is there a national fruit?

 

The fruits of the Golden Shower Tree (Cassia Fistula). the national flower.

And the fruits are more for medical purposes than for a juicy delight.

And one of those "fruits" have made a dent to my parked car!
