Sawang – a cloth seller in Rawai, Phuket
“I would like to present Phuket pineapple as another thing that everyone should try while they are visiting Phuket. The fruit is famous and is an important exporting agricultural product of Phuket. Its uniqueness is crispy and sweet. Moreover, it is not expensive and can be transformed into many products.”
Phuket pineapple is locally called Ya Nad. It is the local fruit of the island. Phuket pineapple is not similar to pineapples from other parts of the country. The fruit is sweet and crispy. You can find it every where on the island and it is not expensive. Therefore, the fruit is very popular among Thais and foreigners.
With its fame, Phuket pineapple is considered the symbol of Phuket. The pineapple can be cooked in many dishes either spicy or sweet. It is a cheap but delicious gift that you can find everywhere in Phuket.
