"It is not surprising because the wholesale rate of banganapalli mangoes is 40 to 50 a kg and goes up to 80 for high-grade ones.
However, with the season just beginning, prices are on the higher side.But, take heart.
It is mainly because of the lack of rains last monsoon and severe heat since February," said Rajesh Kannan, another mango farmer.
While banganapalli costs more than 100 per kg, top quality alphonso costs around 40 a piece in some shops.
This will continue till mangoes in their regions are harvested and start coming into their markets," said Faisal.
