Koyambedu Market Receives 250 Tons of Mangoes as Summer Season Hits Full Swing

Despite a drop in mango production statewide, mangoes from neighboring states like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu are now available in Chennai’s Koyambedu market, marking the peak of the summer season. Roadside vendors are switching to selling mangoes, though prices are high. While arrivals from Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka have surged, Tamil Nadu’s contribution has decreased. Traders blame slow sales on the intense heat, discouraging both retailers and customers. Mango prices vary: Banaganapalli costs between ₹50-80, Malgova is ₹120, Imam Pasand ranges from ₹130 to ₹170, Jawari is priced between ₹60 and ₹70, Senthura is ₹80, and Alphonsa fetches ₹170. Sellers expect prices to drop as arrivals increase. Despite ample supply, sales remain sluggish due to the heat and fewer people out shopping during the holidays, says wholesaler S. Dhanasekar.
