Mr. Kirtisingh Rana is a farmer from Vadodara, Gujarat. They grow kesar mangoes which are ideal for the soil and weather conditions in his place. Mr. Kirtisingh Rana says kesar mangoes start to flower in December and they are able to start harvesting the fruit from April. Weather plays a big part in mango because of the 6 month period between flowering and end of fruit picking. Any inclement weather and thunderstorms could ruin the crop.
