Since fruits are sold differently depending on where I visit, it's no wonder that vegetables and grains are sold differently in each place I visit. I knew it in my head, but I wasn't really interested in vegetables. You can buy fruits and eat them right away, but that's not the case with vegetables and grains. That's probably why I didn't pay much attention to them even if I roamed around the market.
Even here in Jakarta, I saw durian and mangosteen for sale by the roadside, and I was so impressed with the tropical country of Indonesia, but I didn't know what kind of vegetables and grains were sold in this city.
One of the few exceptions to that is the beans I saw here. They were sold at the local market, and they were carried by a man in a grocery store in Chinatown, and they were in huge pods that were disgustingly visible. The beans, which were so big that they could not be compared to soybeans, were something I had never seen before in Japan.
This big bean is called Petai here. They seem to be a major foodstuff in Indonesia and are used in a variety of dishes. I hadn't noticed it, but I might have already eaten it somewhere. At any rate, I saw a stall in Kota district where a big Petai was hanging firmly from a stall.
