Thai mangos and their name
« on: September 01, 2022, 11:49:46 PM »
Hi, I just want to share their name and meaning. Don't know if this had already been done. I just find it interesting.


1. น้ำดอกไม้ Nam Docmai: Nam = water / docmai = flower combine the word it mean Nectar. I think most people know this one.
 *น้ำดอกไม้มัน Nam Docmai Mun: the word Mun describe the nutty/coconut flavor. This variety is a cross between Keow Savoy and Nam docmai.
 *น้ำดอกไม้สีทอง Nam Docmai Si Tong: Si =color / Tong = gold so straight forward it mean Golden Nam Docmai. It is a mutation of regular Nam Docmai with yellow skin when it is ripe. Sometime this mango look beautifully ripe with Golden color but it isn't and it will taste sour if pick too early.
 * น้ำดอกไม้ทวาย Nam Docmai Tawhy: Ta-why = off season/all season. Meaning it will fruits more than once a year or sometime all year long depending on the conditions.
 *น้ำดอกไม้สีม่วง Nam Docmai Si Muang: Si = color / Muang = purple.  So purple nam docmai. This breed is a cross between Nam Docmai and Hong Ju(Taiwan mango). The fruit is much larger than regular.

2. ฟ้าลั่น Falon: should be pronouns fah lun. Fah = sky / Lun = strike combine the word it mean Thunder strike ⚡. It got this name due to its characteristics of splitting with cracking sound when you peel it while it's still unripe. This mango this mostly eaten crunchy  because it have a nutty flavor. Video example of what I'm talking about https://youtu.be/9kDddXBc4uc

3. เขียวเสวย Keow Savoy: Keow = green / Savoy(pronouns Sawoei) = eat/consume. So it mean eat it green or consume green. This mango is mostly eaten crunchy with dipping sauce since it have sweet, tart, and nutty flavor. Keow Savoy and Falon doesn't taste as good when it's completely ripe as many Thai would say. Keow Savoy does have high starch content when unripe so eating too much of it in one sitting may cause upset stomach. When you slice it you can see white starch all over your knife blade.

4.

I realize that it took a long time for me to type this is on my phone so I'll slowly add more variety later when i have more time. But for now, have a good day

Thatís good info. In Malaysia I saw what we call Golden Queen (Keitt x Ivory) which was called Golden Dragon and also a red/purple Dragon mango. Very large. All grown In Thailand. I wonder if this is the purple mango you reference.

I had Pram Kai Mieu mango earlier in the season, and it's so good. According to google, the name translates roughly to "The mango is so good, a venerable man would trade wife for it". :)
Most of my mango trees are Thai varieties: Kiew Yai, Maha Chanok, Pim Seng Mun, Nam Doc Mai #4

Lol some of the name are just silly like that. Pram Kai mia mean pram sell his wife. There also a mango call Leum Pua which mean forget your husband because it's so delicious that you forgot to share with your husband.

LOL. It would be hilarious to have a tree that has both Pram Kai Mia and Leum Pua,
