Bhuj (Gujarat), Dec 11(ANI): Now season is no bar for the aficionados of mangoes, the king of fruits, and all that one has to do is visit the Saurashtra and Kutch regions of Gujarat.

An amazing occurrence has been witnessed here with the mango trees flowering and bearing fruits in winter months, indeed an off-season for these.

Experts have attributed this to climate change that has resulted in favourable temperature and atmospheric conditions for the mango trees.

"Usually January to February end is the flowering season and the mango fruits can be seen in May or June, but this year has seen the fruit growing in October and November which is very unusual," said Falgun Mer, an Agronomist from the Department of Agriculture, Kutch.

"The ignorant farmers think it's a miracle. But the reason behind this change is because prevalent favourable temperature and atmospheric conditions have been created (by climate change)," she added. (ANI)
