Taro root, snake beans, noni fruit, papaya, and eggplant in a man’s basket. Fresh produce to be found in the local Savusavu market. The taro root is sold in bunches tied together with twine and used in cooking much like the potatoe. Eggplant and papaya are also used as a staple to help bulk up a meal when cooking.
