The variants of mangoes in Khan’s farm is so unique that they have an unorthodox look and taste. Some of them look like apples but taste like bananas, others like sweet lime, some have no hint of the sweetness that defines a regular mango and others have a bite akin to that of cumin. The farm also has mini mavinakais that are so small that they weigh only 50 grams.

Furthermore, the mangoes there also defies traditional fruit seasons with many yielding despite climate change and weather vagaries. Khan has even given many of the mangoes to the Indian Institute of Horticultural Research which conducted studies on them and said that the mangoes are unique and not grown anywhere else. About 60% of the variants have been conserved and grown at the institute.

Moreover, Somesh Basavanna, chief executive of the Indian Sahaja Samrudha Organic Producer Company, where Khan’s mangoes are retailed, said that the mangoes are so much in demand that they are easily the most sought after at their store.
