Big On Spice – plant based, unique fruits and vegetables, food reviews!

Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand – Welcome to Nakhon Si Thammarat, in Southern Thailand. Today we’re going to pick and eat one of my favorite fruits – Cempedak (In Thai it’s known as a jambada จำปาดะ). #fruit #cempedak #plantbased

We were lucky to be in Southern Thailand during cempedak season. It’s a very seasonal fruit, and it doesn’t travel well – so even just 800 kilometers away in Bangkok it’s very rare to ever find cempedak. But during season in Southern Thailand, it’s everywhere. I’ve eat cempedak countless times, but this was my first time to see it on the tree, growing. And what a sight that is, so much fruit, it’s incredible. We picked a few, and ate both the fruit seeds, and the pulpy outer flesh which is extremely good.

The next day we stopped at a common roadside stall and ate a huge cempedak. And finally to finish off this guide to cempedak, we were at a local market where we ate some deep fried cempedak. Although it’s not the healthiest option, it’s so good. I love especially that when the cempedak is cooked, you can eat the seeds.

If you have a chance, don’t miss eating cempedak fruit – and unique and exotic Southeast Asian fruit, especially common in Southern Thailand, Malaysia, and parts of Indonesia.

Thank you for watching and hope you’re having a fantastic day!
