Meat and Veggies
This fellow and his friends started to appear at the beginning of the hot season. His name is MaengSahn, elephant insect. Quite the name for such a little guy. Perhaps it's the tusks. To catch him spread a plastic under the tree and shake. In season there are a lot and it doesn't take much work, eaten like grasshoppers and the taste is similar. Maybe next time.
This jackfruit, (MahkMii) is more well known. They still weren't ripe by mid March.
