Rambutans, lychees and mangosteens are currently in season here. They can be found almost everywhere in the streets of Bangkok now, making it more colourful than it already is. Seeing all these colours on a mobile cart, parked along the pavement on busy streets, is really a sight to behold. What’s more, they are really fresh and prices can be quite cheap at around 20-40 baht a kilo. That is really not a bad deal, if you ask me. The quality of these fruits found on the streets ain’t that bad at all too. Sometimes, the stall vendor would gladly give you a 10-20 baht discount if you buy more than a kilo. I simply love the fact that such fruits are so easily accessible here, and abundantly found for not too much money whenever they are in season. Besides, they can be (and usually are!) so succulent that plenty, plenty of juice would spurt out the moment you sink your teeth in them. They are so juicy that you can’t quite stop fussing about the juice dribbling away on your hands. Just heavenly.
Can’t wait for the longan season to come! These fruits can be so addictive!
