A bumper crop of the famed Nagpur oranges is flooding Hyderabad’s markets this season with the fruit being sold at a lower price compared to previous years.

This season, 491 trucks carrying the fruit from different districts of Maharashtra arrived at the Batasingaram market. A few dozen trucks also arrived at the Maozamjahi and Gudimalkapur markets.

The Nagpur variety of the citrus fruit is grown in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra and farmers there have reported a bumper crop. While 114 truckloads arrived here in December 2021, around 344 truckloads of the orange landed here the following year.
