Initially, a cotton and touring dale farmer in the village of Kajapir, near Port, moved to horticulture in 2000 as other crops did not make much profit. For two decades online, Tacor today earns more than $ 50 million a year from its mango garden, which is home to thousands of trees.
“I wanted to do something to get people to have mangoes all year round. People are looking forward to April when the season starts and the stock market closes in June and people want more, so I developed this breed. In fact, when the NRIs come in December and January, they can enjoy these mangoes as well, ”Takor told TOI.
The farmer learned from farming in the Tarsali area of Vadodara and has been experimenting with various varieties of mango since then. Takor traveled extensively in the popular Indian mango tree of Uttar Pradesh-Malihababad, and brought it there to grow tree seedlings.
“I have worked on five varieties, two of which are producing high-quality fruits,” he said.
Nelfonso was originally built at Nevissari Agricultural University to develop the Nellam and Alfonso cross as a current specialist. The first Nelffonso is harvested in July and August, and can be harvested three times a year. Reason? Takor crossed with other species.

Many farmers in the village, trained under Taco, have seen physical growth in their income over the past few years. “He told me to learn how to cultivate Ajitbay because there was little or no income from cotton and tourism. At first, I planted 400 trees, but I saw an increase in income, and today there is a big increase in our family’s income, ”said Ramsh Takor, another farmer in Cape Town. This year, Ramsh plans to turn it into a full-fledged garden.
