Breadfruit Fuk Khao

A bit simular the Durian and Jackfruit Fuk Khao is a breadfruit too and very popular in Thailand. But its rare and very seldom to get on markets in Thailand. If you get offered this fruit you should try the juice - super delicious.
The English call this fruit Gac, the German word is Gacfrucht, the Latin Momordica cochinchinensis.
Because it has a relatively short harvest season (which peaks in December and January), making it less abundant than other foods, gac is typically served at ceremonial or festive occasions in Thailand at New Year and at weddings. More recently, the fruit has begun to be marketed outside of Asia in the form of juice dietary supplements because of its allegedly high phytonutrient content.
(Please get informed that the Thai word "Fuk" is used for pumkins {Fuk Thong, Fuk Faeng} and for the kind of breadfuit {Fuk Khao}.
The English word has a different meaning!)

    Die letzten Male ist mir so eine Frucht nicht aufgefallen, allerdings werde ich in Zukunft mal darauf achten:)
    Liebe Grüße Sylvia
