Fruit exhibition at Bhubaneswar

Odisha government is set to organize a three-day fruit exhibition at the Adivasi ground from May 19, where different varieties of fruits would be up on display.

Fruit growers across the state have been informed through the deputy directors of horticulture to take part about the exhibition. Given the fruit growing trend in the state, mainly mangoes, litchis, jack fruits and coconut varieties become a hit at the exhibition.

The horticulture department, which is organizing the fruit fair, is expecting up to 3,500 participants from 30 districts in the exhibition.

About 25 experts from related fields have been invited to evaluate and judge the best fruit.
