TEMPLES AND CEREMONIES OF KALEIDOSCOPIC BANGKOK The large spiny durian, called by the Siamese "king of fruits," has a pungent odor, but possesses a nutlike flavor. The purple mangosteen, "queen of fruits," has a delicious white center. The red hairy fruit is the rambutan; beside it to the left is the salat. At upper right are areca palm nuts. A "STILL LIFE" OF TROPICAL FRUITS The large green pomeloes (left center), the "grapefruit of the Orient," have been introduced into Florida, but do not thrive as well there as in their native soil, the wet, salty gardens around Bangkok.
