Thai: ??????? (sa-pa-rote)

PineappleThere are two main types of Pineapples grown in Thailand, the softer and sweeter ‘Sri Racha’ variety grown in the coastal areas around Bangkok, and the crunchier and more sour ‘Phuket’ variety grown in the South. Pineapples grow very easily here, and are exported all over the world. In Thailand you can get a 1/2 of a Pineapple cut up for you into bite size pieces in a bag for $.25 USD — Thai version of ‘fast food’! Thais also eat savory food with Pineapple. The most common dishes are ‘Fried Rice with Pineapple’ and ‘Red Curry with Pineapple’.
