Fruit carving is the art of carving fruit, a very common technique in Asian countries, and particularly popular in Thailand. There are many fruits that can be used in this process, the most popular ones that artists use are watermelons, apples, strawberries, pineapples, and cantaloupes. Fruit carving is a significant part of Thai cultural heritage. Watermelon carving dates to the 14th century in Thailand during the Sukhothai dynasty. For this fruit carving activity, you can let us know in advance which fruit you would like to use so we can prepare the fruits along with the possible design for this specific fruit.
