Gooseberries – mayom

In my yard there is a gooseberry.  These goosberries, called mayom [มะยม] in Thai, are quite common in Thailand. They are very sour, but still a popular snack as the Thais like to dip fruits (sweet or not) in sugar chili dips.  They grow quite abundantly on the tree as shown here is only a small branch.
