Mango Mela

The Mango and Jackfruit Mela (Fair) was held in Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, Bangalore, India, in the month of June, 2013. There were a number of vendors selling several varieties of mangoes.

These included Alphonso, Dashehari, Malgoa,  Amrapali, Mallika, Raspuri, Sendhura, Banganapally, Kesar, Thothapuri, Sugar Baby and Neelam.

Most of the stalls stated that the mangoes were organically grown and were carbide-free.

There was a stall selling a colorful collection of pickles and Gulkhand (गुलखंड, made from rose petals).

The Sugar Baby is a tiny mango that is very sweet but with lots of fiber.

There was also a stall selling jackfruit.
