Fruit carving art is a well-known and highly respected craft in Thai culture. It requires neatness, precision, meditation, and personal ability. To begin with, it was taught to women of the royal court so that they could prepare decorations for the tables of the royal family. As you can tell, teamwork is incredibly important with fruit carving, as you need a lot of hands to be able to make many different fruit decorations! Nowadays, the art is much more popular and is used for decorations all over Thailand. It is particularly popular during Songkran or the Thai new year.
Fruit carving art can be created on a variety of different types of fruits and even some vegetables, from mango to watermelon, cucumbers, and more! Different types of fruit have different textures of flesh, so learning how much pressure and what type of knife to use for different fruits or different designs is extremely important in this art challenge!
