dining thai fruit

Thai name: La-mut
Season: September to December

Somewhat resembling a small brown mango in shape, the sapodilla is grown in several widely scattered provinces, among them Chonburi, Sukhothai, Nakhon Sawan and Nakhon Si Thammarat. The fruit is eaten when ripe. After the peel is removed, the firm reddish-brown flesh is sliced into pieces which are often carved into decorative shapes.

Patong means "the forest filled with banana leaves" in Thai.
