India Close to Growing Seedless Mangos for the World!

Bihar Agriculture University announced this week they have approved a hybrid variety of mango they are calling “seedless.”

They are calling the new variety “Sindhu.” Its average weight is 200 grams. The flavor is “rich, sweet and distinctive.” One of the complaints about highly-engineered fruits is flavor, so we’ll be anxious to see reviews of this “distinctive flavor.”

Mango orchards in India may begin growing the Sindhu in large quantities as early as next year.

It’s not actually seedless, however. But the small, thin seed does allow far more fruit in each mango.

Small quantities have been tested for 20 years. The version ready for mass marketing was grown successfully at the university starting in 2011.
