    Isn't that the fameous Thai Katoey Fruit, often on sale in the Lower Suk area?

    I've eaten 10 and 11 but can't remember their names.
    If 12 is guava, then I've got that too, but the photo is of a fairly smooth fruit...so maybe not farang.
    Had all the rest, but 19 as in ingredient not something I want to chew on.

    7. Bananas
    8. "taan" I think (not sure of the English word), but possibly coconuts

    10. In Thai "putsa", I think. Not sure of the English word
    11. No idea
    12. Guava
    13. Jackfruit
    14. More guavas?
    14.b? Lamyai in Thai, Longon in English
    15. Longon in Thai, something else in English

    17. I'm not sure, they look a bit like the same fruit as in 14b but a bit different too.
    18. I forget the name, but they are very sweet.
    19. Tamarind, "makaam"
    20. Dragon fruit

    Yes, you're right, Stroller. I saw the fruit in the picture as being small, and I didn't look closely at the skin.

    I'm doubtful it's a Pomelo. Kaffir Limes are cut up and used as air fresheners in urinals.

    Sapodilla is not a native fruit

    I've seen em in Colombia and C Americas where they originate and N NSW near Mr Warning

    Oddly missed the finest pair, we eat/grow most of above but Nan Oranges and Mae Chan Saporot equal the Kampheang Phet Gluay

    Another fruit is takhop farang, which is known as the Singapore cherry amongst other names. It is the fruit from the calabura tree.

    I mention it because I like the tree and have one in my garden. It is reasonably fast growing and provides good shade. It is originally from the americas but widely distributed in Asia.

    Another one we have on the farm is chebulic myrobalan known locally as samor thai. This is like a large olive, which is eaten either fresh or pickled.

    Another which I want in the garden is Burmese grape, known locally as mak fai.

    We also have Thai blueberry trees in the village, known as mak mao.

    Sure there's a couple more not common in the market. I'll post some pics of the above when I can.
    _________________

    One more I need to post a photo of is caraboa teats (mak pi pooan ?) They are not in our village but can be found in the woods about 10km away. Red fruit with a sweet and sour taste from the uvaria rufa vine.

    Rose apples are also Chompoo in Thai. Ladies love using it as a nickname
