Wet and cold weather in many Indian states during flowering has meant mango exports are already considerably lower than normal, with wholesale prices doubling in some cases.

Amrut Farms and Processes in the western Indian state of Gujarat has 2,500 Kesar mango trees exporting small volumes to the U.K., as well as supplying two exporting companies.

Owner Rishikesh Sojitra said his farm’s yields would be 50% lower this season compared to the previous one due the weather.
