Every year about 20000 boxes of 10 kg each are exported to countries like Australia, America, Switzerland, this time they are likely to be exported to many other countries.

Good arrival of Safeda mangoes in Rajasthan

In Rajasthan, with the onset of the summer season, both the demand and supply of mangoes have increased in the market. There is a good arrival of Safeda mangoes this time.

This is the reason why these mangoes are being sold at Rs 60-70 per kg this year as against Rs 80 to 100 per kg last year.

Good production of several mango varieties

Beganpali, Dussehri, Langda, Sindoori, Kesar and Hapus mangoes have also hit the markets of Rajasthan. Except Hapus mangoes, there is good production of other varieties of mangoes in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat hand there is good supply of these varieties in the markets.

Mango is called the king of fruits and the most special among them is Alphonso i.e. Hapus mango. Presently there are 2 types of Hapus in Rajasthan markets, Ratnagiri ones and Bangalore ones. Among these, the Hapus mangoes of Ratnagiri are considered the best.

Fruit traders of Muhana Mandi tell that mangoes coming from Ratnagiri in Maharashtra are sold in dozen. And the mangoes coming from Bangalore are available on the basis of kilos.

Ratnagiri's mangoes are being sold for 800 to 900 rupees a dozen in wholesale market. On the other hand, the price of Hapus mangoes from Bengaluru is 200 to 250 rupees per kg.

Mango production reduced in Bhopal due to erratic weather

On the other hand mangoes have arrived in markets of Madhya pradesh. in Bhopal, everyday about 15 trucks are coming. About 12 tonnes of mangoes come in one truck. Fruit merchants said that local mangoes are not coming yet. Yield is less.

Mango production in Bhopal will be reduced by 50 percent. The local mangoes will be available in the market only by May 15. Because of this, mango lovers will have to depend on mangoes coming from states like Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra etc. The biggest reason for the low yield of mangoes is the frequently changing weather pattern in Bhopal.

Mango is produced in 450 hectares in Bhopal. There is production of about 80 quintals of mangoes in one hectare. In this way, 36 thousand quintals should have been mangoes. But, this time only about 18 thousand quintals are expected to be produced. That too will be available in the middle of May.
