Explore the Exotic Fruits of Thailand

Thailand is famous for its warm and inviting beaches, stunning temples, friendly people, and its food. The food in Thailand includes a wide, colorful, and mouth-watering array of exotic fruits. Tourists to Thailand, when asked about their favorite aspects of the country, invariably mention the exotic fruits.

In the tourist magnets of Bangkok, Pattaya, Hua Hin, Phuket, and Chiang Mai, you often see tourists happily wandering around the traditional markets sampling and selecting from a dizzying array of exotic fruits.

The climate, the fertile soil, and the farming heritage of Thailand are the main reasons the country has become such an agricultural powerhouse, with thousands of hectares of fragrant orchards full of diverse and exotic fruits under cultivation.

As a company that specializes in the export of exotic Thai fruits, we’d like to introduce you to the best fruits in Thailand and maybe even some fruits you’ve never seen or heard of before.


Explore the Markets of Thailand

The traditional markets of Thailand are the best places to become acquainted with the wide variety of exotic fruits available. Here, you’ll find the poster children of Thailand’s fruits: durians, mangosteens, seedless mangoes, papayas and rambutans – when they’re in season. Figuring out which fruits are in season at different times of the year is the trick to sampling the fruits when they’re at their peak of flavor and ripeness. Durian is a fruit that many people can only appreciate when it’s perfectly ripe.

Offer your customers the exotic fruits of Thailand.


For many tourists, a trip to Thailand is the first time they’ll experience durian, as the fruit doesn’t travel well and is banned from most airlines because of its pungent odor. But that aroma will help lead you to the ripest durians in a crowded market. Most of the traditional markets in Thailand are happy to let you try the fruit before you buy.


Within-the-Border Fruits

Some fruits simply must be experienced when you’re within the borders of Thailand. Everyone has eaten pineapple before. But biting into a slice of fresh pineapple in Thailand can be a revelation. It offers the height of sweetness and flavor. It’s what everyone wishes all pineapples taste like.

The pomelo is another fruit that may be hard to find in temperate countries and even in other Asian countries. But biting into a piece of pomelo in Thailand is like discovering the perfect mix of oranges and grapefruits with a satisfying crunchy texture.


Extra Exotic Fruits

Everyone loves trying a new exotic fruit.


There are some fruits in Thailand that are extra exotic. Many of the tourists visiting Thailand won’t know what to make of a dragon fruit, custard apple, star fruit, or rose apple when they first see them in the market.

Dragon fruits are surprisingly mild considering their colorful, spiky appearance. Custard apples remind people of their namesakes with their sweet taste and creamy texture. Star fruits offer a hint of citrus in their mild sweetness, and rose apples, known as chumpoo in Thailand, are incredibly juicy and offer a hint of a pine mixed with an apple flavor that’s hard to define but definitely worth trying!
