Manipur’s Tamenglong orange, a species of the mandarin family, and a unique fruit crop found in the state, along with Hathei, a special chilli variety, have acquired the Geographical Indication (GI) tag.

Manipur chief minister Nongthombam Biren Singh confirmed the news in a tweet, “What a great start to the day for Manipur! I’m really happy to share that two products of Manipur viz Hathei Chilly & Tamenglong orange have been granted GI tag.”
