tendu fruit stall

on the way to ambikapur last month, we came across this fruit stall in the middle of the forest, just before Chaitma.

Fruit stall in the forest - tendu and papaya
the small yellow tendu fruit are delicious to eat, difficult to find in the towns now, and taste a bit like chikus. a very fibrous fruit, the fibres are arranged very artfully inside the crusty skin.

we got a handsome amount for ten rupees, and gorged on them till we were full.
