In a remarkable feat, local farmers in Karachi have succeeded in cultivating the highly sought-after Miyazaki mango, considered the world’s most expensive variety. These premium mangoes, originally from Japan, are now being grown in the hot climate of Pakistan’s financial capital, fetching an astonishing price of Rs 300,000 per kilogram.

While mango enthusiasts in Pakistan are accustomed to the traditional varieties like Chaunsa, Sindhri, Langra, Dasheri, and Anwar Rathore during the mango season, the arrival of the Miyazaki mango has sparked a new trend in the country’s mango industry.
