Less than the average production of mango this year has pushed its price to the astronomical level. Good quality mango is selling 1.5 times higher than the rate at which it used to sell last year. Kesar that used to sell at Rs700 per 20kg is selling at Rs1,100 per 20kg and Hafoos at Rs1500 per 20kg. People are forced to pay a steep price for the fruit that they love to savor in this season. “The mango yield in south Gujarat is just 50 percent this year compared to last year. Normally, good quality mango starts coming to the market after May 15 every year. It is likely that the rate may dip a bit, but not much,” said Dinesh Padaliya, assistant director of horticulture, Surat.
