Fruit merchants at the market Cali, Colombia

Colombia is famous for a huge variety of tropical fruit that are unique to that region in South America. In the photo, 2 women selling Chontaduro, a fruit that grows in a cluster on a palm tree that is common from the Pacific region of Colombia. These fruits have very hard flesh, so they are normally cooked for 3-5 hours. This fruit is tasty after being cooked and to me tastes like a sweet potato.
