King alphonso mangoes are onto a very tough competition, because in one district of India, Alirajpur district, Madhya Pradesh, grows â€˜noor jahanâ€™, dubbed the worldâ€™s biggest and rarest mango that can even make the king tremble. Grown in the central part of India, the fiber-rich fruit can even weigh heavier than a new-born baby, i.e. up to 3.5 kgs to even 5 kgs.
The growth of the rare mango originally belonging to Afghanistan, is however at its lowest low due to unfavourable weather conditions. Mansoori, an expert told PTI, that because of the unfavourable weather conditions, mangoes that used to weigh between 3.5-4 kg is going down.
â€œThe unusual weather conditions continue to hit the â€˜Noor Jahanâ€™ mango crop here this year as well. The Noor Jahan trees could not flower properly due to cloudy weather in January this yearâ€™â€™.
â€œNow, only three trees of â€˜Noor Jahanâ€™ mango are left which are decades old. The productivity of these trees is also going down,â€ he added.
The â€˜Noor Jahanâ€™ variety produces fruits towards the beginning of June.
