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.

In modern times, Phuket's economy rests on two pillars: rubber tree plantations (making Thailand the biggest producer of rubber in the world) and tourism, with a thriving diving industry attracting thousands of divers each year.
