It officially seems like the time to campaign for that trip to Hawaii, as it nabbed seven of the top ten spots. 




Florida and South Carolina were the only other two states that made the top ten.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year.

However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.
