Thailand Botanical gardens, Research stations etc.
« on: April 17, 2023, 07:55:45 PM »
It would be good to list some spots in Thailand where rare fruit tree's can be spotted.
Please post any spots you know of.

Botanical gardens, private gardens open to the public, research stations etc.

I have not visited any of these botanical gardens or research stations so can not say if there is any edible fruit tree's planted. But this is what I found on internet. it seams that some of these places are open to the public :D
I know there will be blogs such as year of the Durian with some location recommendations.

The Chumphon Horticulture Research Center can be found on the Bangkok bound side of Highway 41 some 32km south of Chumphon town.
The large white building with a blue roof (picture above) was built as a Tourism Information Center however, what I can only guess, the place has closed due to lack of interest. If you venture 100m pass this building you will come to the entrance of the Research Center.
The centre employs almost 200 people. Its aim is to carry out research into coconuts and Robusta coffee in order to help farmers via advice, modern techniques and young shoots. It covers a surface area of 280 ha.
The centre also deals with ecotourism and anyone interested in this subject can contact the centre at:
Chumphon Horticultural Research Center PO Box 3 Amphoe Sawi Chumphon 86130 Thailand

It is my pleasure do add to the abundance of information on this forum.
Restaurants, events and farms are always good places for networking. He has plenty of those videos in both channels.
Allow yourself to know, if you wish, that this is a multi dimensional communication.
See what happens.
