To be honest, I'm not impressed with these weird fruits like mangosteens, durian, etc. I think they taste just fine and don't mind having them - but it's not something I miss when I go back home.  

Mango's for me with some nice coconut sticky rice

Noi Na is the most awesome food I've eaten in my life. 60 baht ones are huge and better than the 20-30 baht ones. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Custard-apple

The pinaeapple.

It's so sweet and the contrasy in flavour between the stuff available from street carts to what we get in the UK is incredible.

I'll be paying a visit to the lady with the cart outside the 7/11 at the rear of the Avenue on my first day. It's always fantastic.

Strangely, I find the pineapple in hotel breakfast buffets to be completely different. This seems to be the case at most hotels. Always under ripe and lacking in flavour compared to the stuff on street carts. 

I like the watermelon also but there's tons of seeds in them in Thailand. I suppose the stuff we buy in western supermarkets is grown to achieve a low seed content, whereas the stuff in Thailand is natural.

If you love mangoes like myself, visit one of the local markets instead of the supermarket and even the fruit carts on the street: If you are lucky, you will find more than one kind of mangoes. The ones sold in supermarkets are the Nam Dok Mai and Ok Rhong Damnoen varieties - cultivars bred for uniformity. 

The Ok Rhong Damnoen goes into the popular mango with sticky rice. 

If you are really lucky and in time for Mango fairs, do not miss them!

Dragon fruit,  the ones available in the USA are small and have no flavor, in addition to being extremely expensive.  Also, apple pears,  also hard to acquire in America.  Almost everyday have one or both from random street carts in Pattaya.  Sometimes pineapple for variety.

If I am in Thailand and if I need to choose a fruits then Dragon fruit and  Mangosteen is my first choices as they are sweet and it's part of Thai cuisines.

Young coconut meat....its very soft, sweet and gelly type semi transparent fresh/meat.  We grow Orange Colour coconut tree in our home, only to take the young coconut meat and water. We used to make tender coconut shake with it.

Pomelo, the pink variety. It was selling in Central supermarket for 200 a punnet while the yellow variety was going for 110.

I also like the Thai sweet green mango "mamuang keow wan". It's only nice green and the only mango which is best eaten green.

My tastes change as do the seasons when fruits are at their best, Mangosteen when in season are amaseing and cheap, same with mango. I love the Thai Green oranges but they are not so good ATM my favorite at the moment are seedless grapes, 60-70 B  Kg ATM.

Pineapple on the beach is my families favourite...so much so that I regularly buy whole pineapples here and slice them up at home....we are always trying to capture that sweet Thai pineapple flavour and while we get close....not quite.

kids have been to Thailand......Bkk, Hua Hin Patts, Phuket ....probably 6 times over the years and it’s a highlight.   The beach vendors were always happy to see us.

Hate mango. Don’t like coconut or mangosteen.

Love pineapple and a combination of that with papaya and dragon fruit usually goes down well.
