Cosechas de Zamboanga

Farmers from Zamboanga, Cotabato and Davao displayed their products during the Cosechas de Zamboanga at Plaza Pershing. The market fair ran from October 1 to 15, 2008.

During my visit at the trade fair, I was able to taste an exotic root crop called Yacon. Yacon is considered as the Apple of the Earth. It looks like a camote or ube but when it is peeled it looks like an apple. It is watery and had a very distinct taste. I was also amazed by the gigantic gumamelas.

You can watch the slide show of the photos below or visit the Photo Gallery of What's on Zamboanga.
