Jackfruit

In my younger days, there was jackfruit everywhere, but I was not very fond of its smell and feel. However, in my seventh decade, I have developed a taste for it. So I was happy to see this woman displaying the fruit in a very artistic way in front of Rasi Silks.

However well displayed, I will not pick up the open fruit from a street. Will you?

jackfruit is  known as palaa pazham (Tam), Chakka (Mal), Phanas (Hindi, Skt) and kathal (Bengali)
