The bamboo framework of a hut housing a sales-point.

Durian, mangoosteen, plantain and king coconut fruits on sale.
The Durian fruit is in season now. Each fruit fetches above Rs.250/-. It has a thick hard prickly skin which emits a rather strong odour. The flesh which covers the hard nuts inside is relished by connosiers. The fruit is said to have aphrodisiac effects.
