Grapes

Thai Fruit


Thai name: A-ngune
Season: September to April

Real grapes in a hot country like Thailand? By all means, and delicious ones, too, both red and white, and available all year round though the peak fruiting season is September through April. Actually, most of the varieties grown were developed at Kasetsat Agricultural University to thrive under tropical conditions and are now an important source of income for many farmers in Nakhon Pathom, Ratchaburi and Samut Sakhon Provinces. Thai wine is also being made and while a bit sweet for most European palates is nonetheless steadily improving in quality.

Phuket's western coast has several sandy beaches, while on the east coast beaches are more often muddy.
