Fist: Hapus mangoes are in high demand to make Prasad and Aamras during Gudi Padwa, one of the three and a half Muhurtas, and during the Hindu New Year, but Hapus mangoes have been affected by climate change and the fruit has shriveled. Farmers estimate that there will be a good mango crop in the second phase. The mangoes come to the market from Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg, Rayagada and other states like Karnataka and Kerala. This year, the first phase Hapus are arriving in large numbers on the market. So the people of Pune got Hapus on the occasion of Gudi Padwa a bit cheaper than last year. Traders said that although the production of Hapus is low, the current arrival on the market is good.
On Tuesday, between 1,000 and 1,500 boxes of fruit arrived at the market from Konkan. Along with this, the merchants keep preparing Hapus especially for Padwa. Many merchants use Gudi Padwa time to buy and sell in the market.
