The Orchard In Mahawasat Canal

The orchard is home to pomelos, bananas, jackfruit, and three types of mangoes. Upon arrival, the owners will greet you and offer a sampling of the fruits grown on the farm. The area is known for producing the best pomelos in Thailand, possibly due to the river's tidal nature during the dry season, resulting in slightly brackish water. The average weight of a jackfruit harvested here is 5kg, but the largest ever harvested on this farm weighed an incredible 30kg! Additionally, the orchard produces dried banana and jackfruit chips that you can purchase on-site. You can also take a local boat trip to see the people living along the Mahasawat Canal and visit the agricultural farms in the area, such as the lotus and orchid farms.
