At the fruit market

Near Otis Market in Butuan City, fruit vendors hawk their wares. I dared to photograph them, but I admit to having sampled some of them as well.


Extremely sweet; like a coarse ripe pear in texture; taste almost like darkened brown sugar.

The ubiquitous Mango of the Philippines.


Langka: Jackfruit wrapped in cellophane.


Masterwork of a baker's art. There's no corn in this bread, and it's actually rather bland, like perhaps a baking powder bread; a little sweet. I still like to eat it!

So ends yesterday's market day. Tomorrow there's another fruit market I hope to visit, with dozens of fruits and vegetables displayed.
