Navi Mumbai: Mango supply increases and will grow in days to come

The Agriculture Produce Market Committee in Vashi received around 38 boxes of Alphonso mangoes from Ratnagiri on Thursday, with traders claiming this is the maximum supply of mangoes during this season so far.

At present, a box of the fruit is goes for approximately Rs 9,000, with each containing 4-8 dozen mangoes, depending on the size. However, the supply is expected to increase by March and prices will come down accordingly.

Mangoes usually start arriving in the wholesale markets at the start of January and the supply improves by late February. “This year, there is a good yield of mangoes and in days to come, there will be good supply,” Sanjay Pansare, director of Fruits Market at APMC, said, adding that the king of fruits will cost less once supply increases.

Meanwhile, other varieties of mangoes from Raigad in Maharashtra and Karnataka are also arriving. At present, the retail price of Alphonso mangoes is between Rs400-550 per kg.
