Hail Queen Noorjahan

Name the king of fruits after a Mughal beauty and dig into royalty fit for an emperor. Her Fruitiness is the sweet and well turned Noorjahan mango—an exclusive from Madhya Pradesh’s Katthiwada region. It is fetching Rs 500 to Rs 1,000 apiece this season following a good yield because of flattering weather. But not quite the record it set in 2019 when each Noorjahan weighed around 2.75 kg and wore a price tag of Rs 1,200. The Noorjahan ripens towards the beginning of June; it can grow up to a foot long and its kernels weigh around 200 grams. Like the Mughal empress who came from Persia via Kabul, this mango breed is said to be of Afghan origin and cultivated solely in Katthiwada of Alirajpur district along the Gujarat border.
