It is the season of mangoes. If you are in search of farm fresh mangos then check out this shop in South Mada Street, Mylapore which makes this claim.
S K Fruits is a 25 year old fruit shop. During the summer season mangoes are transported here from the farms in Tada, Andhra Pradesh. “These are mangoes picked from our relatives’ farms and are naturally ripened without using stones or substance,” says Sasi Kumar.
He says, Malgova mangoes are high in demand and new stocks arrive every other day. These are sold at Rs. 140 per kg.
They also sell mango varieties of Javvadhu, Banganapalle and Sendoora. They cost Rs. 140, Rs. 120 and Rs. 80 per kg respectively.
Sasi Kumar has a tip for foodies – the Javvadhu tastes the best when you make a milkshake using it.
