Brisk mango trading in Rajshahi, C’nawabganj

RAJSHAHI: After the Eid celebration, mango trading has gained momentum with appearance of several varieties of the fruit in the markets of Rajshahi and Chapainawabganj districts, known as the hub of the delicious fruit, reports BSS. Apart from the established markets, enormous mango-based trading at haats and other growth centres has changed the rural economic scenario of the region as a whole.

Now the divisional city’s markets are abundant with all varieties of mango and the wholesale buyers as well as the retailers have been pouring into the markets and bargaining to settle the price.

After ending the brisk business of Gopalbhog, a king variety of mango for its taste and flavor, some other delicious varieties like Khirshapat, Langra and Fazli have appeared in the markets in abundance besides other local and developed varieties.

Abdul Wadud Montu, a mango wholesaler at Shaheb Bazar, said Khirsapat is being sold from Taka 1,800 to 2,000, Langra from Taka 1,600 to 1,800, Fazli from Taka 800 to 1,100 and Ranipasand from Taka 1,200 to 1,400 per mound at present.

He mentioned that the present market price is lower than the previous years. Month-long Ramadan followed by Eid-celebration might be the reason behind the price fall. Montu, however, says there is no possibility of reducing the market price in the days ahead.

In Rajshahi city, many places like Shaheb Bazar, Swarnapatty, Seroil, Railway Gate, Luxmipur Bus terminal, Court Bazaar, New Market, Upashahar Market, Shalbagan, Binodpur, Court Station and Baneshwar Bazar are flooded with mangoes.

Besides the market-based trading, many vendors are selling mango with vans and other manual vehicles frequently.

Ali Hossain, a mango-trader at Bus terminal in the metropolis, said the much- expected buying and selling has been gaining momentum gradually despite the high price.

Like the previous years, people from across the country are coming to Rajshahi city and its outskirts especially Baneshawar Bazar to buy quality juicy mangoes.

Meanwhile, around 40 tonnes of mangoes are now being supplied and transported from Rajshahi and Chapainawabganj districts to different parts of the country including the capital city Dhaka every day.

In addition to the passenger-coach, train, truck and other private vehicles, huge mangoes are being transported by the courier services in particular every day.

Some conscious buyers alleged that a section of unscrupulous mango traders are mixing quality mangoes with low quality ones to make extra profit.

Centering the marketing of mango, also an important cash crop in the northwestern Bangladesh especially in the two districts, a large number of people are involved in various types of works in the two districts.
