Sala seller Yogyakarta, Java

Fruit seller in Yogyakarta, Java.

Sala is an indigenous fruit of Southeast Asia. The starchy, crunchy, edible part of the fruit is protected by a leathery brown skin. (Sala, or sometimes known as salak, translates as “snake fruit.”) This photo of a sala seller was taken inside one of the many markets that line the main road in Yogyakarta.
