Devgad Mango Season 2012
Date: March 25, 2012Category: DevgadMango Updates
We have a heavy heart as we write this season update. We had expected the season to start by 15 March or latest by 25 March this year. However, prolonged winter and a pest attack again this year has pushed the season forward. With cold setting over the last fortnight across Devgad, fruits have been falling off the trees and there was no surety of the quality of the fruits leftover. Because of this, we will not be able to give mangoes to you in March as promised and we are sorry for that. We are now hoping the season will start after 7 April.
However, we expect the season to be very short, a maximum of 45 days, and deeply regret that we may not be able to supply mangoes to everyone. You would see mangoes in the mandis soon, but as you know under the Devgad Mango brand, we only supply the best and quality assured Devgad Alphonso fruit, which will be short in supply.
As a priority, when the season starts, we will supply mangoes first to the people who enrolled in Mango Bonds, starting with people who have already paid. Then we will supply to those who opted for cash/cheque pick up, but we have not been able to collect money from them yet. We have been trying to get a cash/payment collection partner, and it took us a long time to get a reliable partner.
Those who opted for a bank transfer and cheque courier, are requested to kindly make their payments so that we can process your Mango Bond orders.
Thereafter we will open the orders for everyone. In Pune, we have made arrangements for home delivery, while in Mumbai we have made arrangements for pick up centers at around 14 locations of a courier company! This is a difficult time for Alphonso mango growers as Nature is being a bit unfavorable. Last year it was the aftermath of the Tsunami, which disturbed the earth’s rotation and brought rains in December and cold waves in February. This year it was the aftereffects of Thane Cyclone, which took away winter in December end and brought it back in March. We request your support as we battle it out and struggle to get a good Alphonso Mango production!
