2012 Thailand Retreat (30 Apr – 12 May) – Fruit and Fruit Orchards Posted on 30 May, 2012 by RawAussieAthlete I love when durian’s try to get my attention with a beautiful sunburst, golden colour. 🙂 Organic Monthong Durian tree. Several varieties of Thai banana, papaya, water apple and santol. Unripe papaya on the plant. Fresh durian on an organic farm! Longkong is a delicious variety of langsat! A perfectly symmetrical mangosteen! Fresh, juicy Jackfruit is delicious!!! How the experts open durian. Let it mostly ripen then help split the bottom open by driving a knife in and giving a little twist. Once the bottom is split open the durian will stop putting up a fight and yield its beautiful fruit 🙂 Durian composting and seeds sprouting. Jackfruit (kanoon in Thai) trees are everywhere in Thailand. In the local name, “Noon” means support, so almost every home has a jackfruit tree!
