What's This Weed?

Recommended Posts

I don't know what it is called, but I have been told by the local Thais that you can't eat the small cucumber type fruit.

Got my attention "cant eat the small cucumber type fruit" . I have a tree that yields what we call "cucumber fruit" which is actually BILIMBI which is very tart/sour and a favorite of my Thai friends accompanied by lots of salt, beer, whiskey and makes a great curry dish. Enjoy !

Balak Kee Nok. A small bitter cucumber. Eat all parts. Good in soups, etc.

Regards.

What can I say? Only what I have been told and as you probably realise, with many Thais, what they don't know, they make up.
