India: Red lady finger that costs Rs 800 per kg, here’s why?
A ladyfinger is generally recognized for its green color and sticky texture, but in an uncommon development, a farmer has developed a new red variety.
Bhindi, also known as Okra in Hindi and Ladyfinger in English, is a common vegetable in Pakistani and Indian households and is high in antioxidants and vitamins.
A ladyfinger is generally recognized for its green color and sticky texture, but in an uncommon development, a farmer has developed a new red kind.
Misrilal Rajput, a farmer from the Khajuri Kalan area of Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal district, is producing red ladyfinger in his garden. During an interview with ANI on Sunday (September 6, 2021), he emphasized the advantages of his ladyfinger variation.
According to him, “The ladyfinger that I grow is red in color instead of its usual green color. It is more beneficial and nutritious than green ladyfinger. It is extremely beneficial for people who are facing heart and blood pressure issues, diabetes, high cholesterol.”
For the cultivation process, he said, “I had purchased 1 kg seeds from an agricultural research institute in Varanasi. I sowed them in the first week of July. In around 40 days, it started growing.”
According to Rajput, no toxic pesticides were utilized during red ladyfinger farming. An acre of land may support a minimum of 40-50 quintals and a maximum of 70-80 quintals, according to Rajput.
About the sales and price of his product, he said, “This ladyfinger is 5-7 times more expensive than ordinary ladyfingers. It is being sold from Rs 75-80 to Rs 300-400 per 250 gram/500 gram in some malls.”
