Imagine this view — early morning hours, clouds skylarking golden sun rays, birds welcoming you with melodious songs as you walk among blooming mango trees. All your troubles lose importance when you stand under orchard trees. When the soaking rains suddenly stop, your feet sink deep into the soil. The smell of fresh mango spring up something that is worth more than money.

Doesn’t it remind you the taste of mango?

To heighten your mirth and solace, UP Mango Festival has organized one such rendezvous, the Orchard Visit. Before traversing the mango lanes, let us see what a Mango Fest actually is!

About UP Mango Fest –

mango-festival-wordhazard
In the present time, more than 1,360 varieties of mangoes are available worldwide, out of which more than 1,000 are found in India. The factual diversity ranges from different various breeds to various sizes (from the size of a grape to a weight over 2.5 kg). This wide spectrum is a prime attraction for people from all over the world. Hence, UP Mango Fest aims at providing recognition to the King of Fruits by the means of an annual exhibition.

Objectives of Mango Fest –

mango2-wordhazard
Are you aware of the origin of Mango? Well, it is considered as a native crop to Indian Subcontinent, cultivated for over 4,000 years! Hence, an essential part of this fest is to pay homage to Indian farmers for running the cultivation of this traditional crop. The next aim is providing easy access to various breeds of mango and associated products at user-friendly prices. This is a major catch in the event where people taste selectively handpicked fresh farm-fruits. Another purpose to organize this event is to promote & patronize mango-growers to advance technologically to increase their production and product quality. Extracting maximum returns from the product, making provisions for sales of secondary sellers, tapping domestic and international markets and ultimately contributing to the national economy all circle the target of Mango Fest.

Pioneers of UP Mango Fest –

jyotsana-wordhazard-newThe first UP Mango Festival was held in 2013 as a motivational event to promote the regional breeds and their cultivators, to extend support to farmers and women in agriculture. It has been adopted as an annual fest ever since.
The UP Mango Fest owes its glory to the efforts of Jyotsna Kaur Habibullah, who led to the first successful fest in 2013. Madhvendra Deo Singh supported as an Agripreneur to uplift the nation and its people.
The ‘Orchard Visit’ had been held in Madhav Udyaan, Malihabaad until last year. In 2018, it will be organized in the Abbasi mango orchard which belongs to Shahid Abbasi to cover more orchards in the state.
