I I Hajiwala and Mr 2. Do you know
what these are? They’re varieties of | mango grown in Sindh. though

stall at the recent 49th National Mango and Summer Fruits Festival 2014 in Mirpukhas. “For example, there is the Dussehri which is small in size that is known among mango growers as the black variety and then there is the other Dussehri which is bigger and longer that is known as the white variety. The latter is also more nutritious.”
