3 day Mango Mela from June 1

MYSORE, May 26: The Department of Horticulture is organising a three-day state-level ‘mango mela’ in the city from June 1 to provide a platform for growers to market their produce and make quality fruits reach mango lovers directly.
Department sources told that farm fresh and naturally ripened mangoes would be available at the mela in which farmers from Mysore district would sell mangoes grown in their orchards directly to customers. The mela aims at establishing direct contact between growers and customers.
“Our aim is that growers get a good price while customers get quality and naturally-ripened delicious fruit,” Deputy Director of Horticulture Nagaraj said.
About 25 mango farmers have agreed to bring their produce to the mela. “Other growers have also been requested to participate in the mela. Farmers will get space in the Curzon Park, where the every year Famous Fasara Flower show held, to market their produce,” he said. (UNI)
