Tasty Fruits.


Custard Apple. Even though this fruit has many big seeds,
it has a sweet and good taste. The fruits have green color
when they are ripe. The skins of the ripe and the unripe
fruits have the same green color.




Suppota (Chickoo). The fruit and the skin have the same
brown color. The variety we have in our home is different
from the usual variety available from the market. They
(available from the market) have a smooth skin.Our fruits
have a good sweet taste.




Plums. This fruits come to our place from the mountain
regions. Now they are getting rarer here.




kovai (koovai) Fruits. These fruits are not consumed by
many. They are not cultivated but grow like a weed plant.
This plant is a vine. They don't have a sweet and good
taste. They grow near our house.

These brownish gray colored birds, visit our home in the
morning and in the evening, with loud noise. They come
in groups and make loud sounds frequently. They are
medium sized. They are not shy of us. These noisy birds
have an amusing habit of raising their wings and tails,
whenever they make sounds.
