A cluster of farmers hailing from Tripura’s Pancharatan, Narikel Kunja and Tai Chakma ADC villages under Gandacherra sub-division of Dhalai district is trying to cultivate one of the costliest mangoes in the world known as ‘Miyazaki’.
Apart from it, they are also trying to grow other popular mangoes like ‘Amrapalli’, ‘Himsagar’, ‘Haribhanga’, ‘Vermis’, among others.
Mangoes from several areas of Gandacherra sub-division in Dhalai district have also gained popularity. Different varieties of mangoes are cultivated in different regions of the subdivision. And all these mangoes are exported to different cities of the state. Mango sellers in various cities of the state have already negotiated with mango growers to purchase mangoes from several orchards in the sub-division, reports NorthEast Today.
The farmers are earning profits by selling mangoes in the region.
According to reports, ‘Miyazaki’ variety costs Rs. 1500 per kilogram.
The farmers told the news portal that after several days of intense heat in the summer, there was little rain, but there has been not much damage to the mango crop. So they are hopeful that both farmers and traders will benefit from mango exports this year.
