The aroma of jackfruit draws many shoppers on the Mada Streets around Sri Kapali Temple, Mylapore.
More hawkers are selling jackfruit the past days due to demand for Vishu ( Malayalam new year).
“This year’s harvest isn’t good. Bad harvest and the festival season has increased the price of jackfruits” said Loganathan, who sells jackfruit on North Mada Street.
It is sold at Rs. 60 : 1/4 kg and at Rs. 100/ half kg
