Papaya

Thai Fruit

dining thai fruit

Thai name: Ma-la-ko
Season: all year

Originally a native of Mexico, the papaya has been grown in Southeast Asia since the 16th century and the long yellow or orange fruit, rich in Vitamins A and C, is a well-established component of Thai cuisine. In perhaps its most popular use, green papayas are sliced into thin strips and ground together with dried shrimp, garlic, and hot chilies to produce a fiery salad called som tam. The ripe fruit is often eaten with a few drops of freshly squeezed lime juice.

Phuket has a total of 9 brooks and creeks but does not have any major rivers.
