Madhya Pradesh: What Is So Unique About Seoni’s Sitaphal? Why Is it In Good Demand In Country


Seoni: In Madhya Pradesh’s Seoni district, more than 6500 metric tonnes of Sitaphal is produced in an area of 656 hectares. Since the weight of Sitaphal is 600 to 700 grams, it has been named ‘Seoni Jumbo Sitaphal’. Due to its distinctive shape and taste, it is in good demand in the country and the state. 

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shri Chouhan apprised himself about the jumbo size, distinctive properties and taste of Sitaphal grown in state’s Seoni district. CM Chouhan had a look at the ‘Seoni Jumbo Sitaphal’ during ‘One District-One Product’ programme in Seoni,

To give it a unique identity, a Sitaphal Pulp Unit has been started with the participation of Women Self-Help Group of Aajeevika Mission and a Farmer Producer Organisation has been constituted.

CM Chouhan expressed happiness over the efforts being made by the district administration to popularize ‘Seoni Jumbo Sitaphal’. He directed to ensure that the farmers of Seoni Jumbo Sitaphal and women of Aajeevika Mission, who make pulp and other products by processing it, should get better price for their produce. 

Chouhan also directed to make it popular in the country and the state through better marketing of the brand.
