Lalbagh Mango and Jack-fruit Fair 2015

Mangoes everywhere in Lalbagh

It was more of mango than jackfruit in Lalbagh Botanical Gardens. I saw about 4-5 jack fruits displayed but it was mango which occupied the majority space in the garden.

The special about this “Mango Fare” is that the mango displayed and sold here are grown organically and it’s not ripened artificially. In short, the fruits were chemical free.

The stalls were crowded with busy mango shoppers. There were more than twenty varieties of mangoes on display and sale. The customers were given a slice of mango to taste so that they can buy only if the mangoes were sweet and they liked it.

There’s one permanent stall selling mango and grape juice. Even bottled mineral water is available here, in case if you are feeling thirsty.
