Seedless Mangoes

The Sindhu mango – so named because Gunjate’s breeding program happened in the Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra – is a finely textured, juicy fruit with a rich, sweet and distinctive flavor at maturity.

What sets it apart from other varieties is the fact that it is virtually seedless – although it is referred to as being seedless in general terms – and is a hybrid of Alphonso, largely considered to be the best Indian mango, and another variety Ratna.

Doctor Ramchandram Gunjate, who has been working on a hybridization program for around 15 years said “Developing a new variety is a long-term process it takes about 12 to 15 years to release one variety, if you are lucky”.
