A couple in Madhya Pradesh has deployed four guards and six dogs to prevent the theft of two mango trees.

Miyazaki mangoes are said to be one of the most expensive breeds of mangoes in the world. Also known as an egg of the sun, the Miyazaki mangoes sold at ₹2.70 lakh per kilogram in the international market last year, the daily said citing a Japanese media report.

According to the farmer couple, last year, some thieves broke into their orchards and stole the mangoes after it became locally known that they have started growing this rare fruit. However, the couple could manage two protect two trees.

Consequently, the couple deployed four guards and six dogs to protect the rare trees and seven mangoes.

Elaborating about how they started growing this rare variety of mango, Parihar said, he was on his way to Chennai to buy some saplings when he met a man on a train, who offered him what later turned out to be Miyazaki. “He offered these saplings to me and asked to take care of these plants like our babies. We planted in the orchard without knowing what variety of mangoes it will produce”.

Sankalp has named the mangoes Damini, after the name of his mother.

“Later, we researched about this variety and found the real name. But it is still Damini for me,” Parihar told the daily. MORE FROM THIS SECTIONSee All

Sankalp’s wife Rani said many people have shown interest to buy Mirazaki mangoes. She said a Mumbai-based jeweller is ready to pay ₹21,000 for a mango.

However, the couple has decided not to sell the mangoes to anyone yet, and instead they would grow them.null
