No Indian Mangoes This Year?

I called Patel Brothers in Jackson Heights this morning and the outlook is grim. No exports of Indian mangoes are coming through. At best, the man I spoke to thought perhaps he might get one shipment, maybe two.

Blame unseasonal rains and a too-cold winter. Yields are way down and prices are very high.

"Dr Vivek Bhide, who exports the Alphonso to the US and Singapore, said that there had been only 10% of the normal yield."
