Palmyrah tuber Sale

PALMYRAH TUBERS SALE: An old (Tribal) women selling their own produced Tubers at Rs.10/- (5Nos) at Chinturu Bus stand center. They dig the tubers before one day, boil and burn them and carry to this place. The commuters from Bhadrachalam going to Rajahmundry and Vishaka purchases after a long bargaining for low price and getting more numbers. If we make some value addition like making them clean and packing with a sticker will fetch more money for them besides avoiding 8 hours duty of waiting for sale at centre in hot sun and dust atmosphere. The product is worthwhile of putting in MAALS because of nutrient values.
