I did a little inventory of the fruits I know – limes, grapes, rose apples, apples, lychees, mangostene, mango, banana, water melon, pineapple, papaya … there’s at least 4 or 5 that I can see that I don’t know the names of …

I AM enjoying that! And I know there will be vegetables soon…..close ups please?
Perhaps, you’ll have to wait and see what comes 😀
Thailand markets resemble a lot like Indian markets full of colors and flavors. Yes, I can see papaya, limes, the hairy monster like fruit (which I absolutely hate), mangostene (which is heavenly but super expensive in India), grapes, cantaloupes (??), apples, bananas and mangoes. But to tell you something very frankly, in India, you will find so many varieties of mangoes, you will be astounded. And you haven’t tasted a mango if you haven’t eaten an Alphonso mango, the king of mangoes.
LOL, perhaps I will one day 😀
Some of the fruit mentioned is so expensive in the UK.
What you talking about everything is expensive in the UK !
Where’s Major Tom? Is David Bowie trying to smoke the catnip? So many questions, so little time…
Mangosteen! oh I wish I could get some from there
Nice fruit … lychee quite similar, can you get those where you are ?
Hi DC, Mangosteen was illegal in the US due to the belief that they harbored the Asian fruit fly, until October of 2007. Cyberspace tells me the first fruits were shipped in April of this year and can be found in a supermarket in San Francisco- a long way from me though.
So I get organic Mangosteen juice from Bioinnovations in Texas. Sweet! Regards,
They are nice fruit, they seem to have a season over here … quite like the lychee except less “chewy” … if they are shipping then I guess eventually they’ll reach where you are 😀
It makes me feel hungry. I love fruit. Although I became allergic to berries in 2011 and miss them a lot.
Wish I was there…wonderful!
Different culture – different knowledge, my dear … 😀 😀 😀
What colourful stalls! I’m holding a knife … ready to make a big’ vitaminizing fruit salad 🙂
Hope it was good 😀
Yep, it was excellent 😛
Gooooood Sunday, Dear Don 🙂
Looks very good, I would shop there. Great shot Don 😉
I am converted to market stalls in Spain after yesterdays haul…I got 2 large red peppers, 2 large green peppers, 2 apples (not sure of sort) and half a kilo of apricots for 1.50 euros (about 1.20 sterling)!
Yes some good deals can be had … in thailand you save money if you send a thai person shopping at the market on their own … white faces generally get charged higher prices …
I can see mangosteen and rambutan! 😀
Is rambutan the hairy one ?
Yes it is, Sir 🙂
