Fruits of Thailand - 11 - Longkong - 'laawng gaawng' - ลองกอง
Plate 1. - LONGKONG - 'laawng gaawng'(ลองกอง)
This fruit grows in bunches and from the outside is similar in appearance to Longans. Break into the leathery casing with your fingers to reveal the creamy grey flesh which is split into segments. It has a sweet taste with a sour edge and is very sticky. Some of the segments have seeds which should not be chewed as they are very bitter.
