Bali was truly a land of abundance.
The warm climate and its fertile land made agricultural products bountiful.
Our driver told us that the staples were coconuts — fruits were yielded from the trees all-year round, plus the whole tree was usable down to the leaves and trunk for furnitures and fabric.
Many food crops were harvested on the island: peppers, beans, mangoes, papayas, pineapples, ginger, mandarin oranges, passion fruit, mangosteens and coffees to name a few.
Most notably was rice cultivation.
There were rice fields every where: short grain, long grain, black rice, and the list goes on.
Large amount of the rice grown in Bali was exported to the rest of Indonesia.
