Local colour II

This is the morning fruit and vegetable market at the base of Liyu Mountain in Taitung City. A lot of senior citizens go to the mountain (which is only 75m high) to exercise and then do some shopping on the way home. In addition to the usual cabbages (a Taiwanese staple), carrots (which in Mandarin are called 紅蘿蔔 hóng luó bó, literally 'red turnips'), onions, turnips and various leafy greens I also spotted several people selling the vegetables pictured below. Never before seen by me!
