It looks like if you want to feast on a variety of mangoes this season, head north. Prices in the capital city have dropped more than they have in Mumbai, when compared to last year’s. But if you are sweet on Alphonsos, head south to Bangalore, where they seem to the cheapest, selling for Rs 96 a kg. Media reports have suggested that a good crop and a reduced demand from export markets have resulted in a surplus of the King of Mangoes in the domestic market, thus bringing down their price. We are not complaining!
