Lastly, it was Fruity Friday where I showcased some unusual Thai Fruits like the Matum Fruit, Thai cherries which look very much like cherry tomatoes but not in taste also the Mangosteen Fruit which I think you may find outside of Thailand and the Gac Fruit also some lovely recipes… I do hope you will enjoy learning about some of the fruits I  enjoy here in Thailand.
