Konkan fruit fest to be held between May 10-12 Last Updated : 08 May 2013 12:42:55 PM IST File Photo of Fruit
The festival will be held in Margao town this year, wherein hundreds of exotic fruit varieties would be on sale and display, Minguel Braganza, secretary of the Botanical Society of Goa, said on Wednesday.
He said that the festival which started in 2003 in Panaji is aimed at promoting the lesser known fruits of the Konkan region, with a view to improve the long-term food security and preserve the unique fruit biodiversity of the region.
"Without an interest in these fruits, we are likely to lose favourites including sweet mangosteen, red oil palm, citron, kokum and jambul fruit," Braganza said.
The festival provides an opportunity to the common people and youths in Goa to sample popular tropical fruits, local wines, foods and several increasingly rare seasonalb fruit varieties, he said.
In the festival the regional farmers can sell these fruits and they are encouraged to maintain their trees for the enjoyment of the future generations, he said.
Braganza said that the festival also features competition for fruits, fruit products, on the spot competition in fruit eating and fruit carving among other things.loading...
