Bananas have been cultivated in Thailand for thousands of years. Some 30 varieties are grown throughout the country. Thais use not only the actual fruit, but also the flowers to make delicious salads. If small bananas are not available, they can be substituted with bigger ones. When they are used for boiling, a firm fruit is needed.
