The mango fruit is the king of summer. And who celebrates it more than those who care for the trees that yield the fruit. The latest buzz in tourist spots near the city could well be the Hanu Reddy mango farm that is planning the great Mango Festival of 2019 in style.
The sun could be beating down in summer but you won't feel it in a farm of mango trees, as plentiful in providing shade as fruit. The Hanu Reddy Mango Tourism is offering the chance to celebrate mangoes with an authentic farm adventure.
A 'mangolicious' breakfast prepared by celebrity chefs awaits at a 156-ft long communal style dining table (built from the trees felled by Cyclone Vardah)! With a host of other farm inspired activities, there's something for everyone including mango picking, bullock cart rides, pottery, traditional games, ploughing, composting, etc. Walk around a mini marketplace for everything from pickles to jams, organic cosmetics, eco-friendly home products and more, says Ms Nirumapa Reddy, COO of Hanu Reddy Residences.
Each day of the weekend has a special workshop lined up with Mrs. Mallika Badrinath to show you exciting ways to incorporate the king of fruits into your cooking while Rakesh Raghunathan (Puliyogare Travels) gives you a bite of history as he brings to the table, tasty mango dishes together with cultures and communities that are tied to it. There will be a yoga class to spend time usefully in the course of the weekend in a camp atmosphere, the night could be spent in comfortable tents set up by a specialty tourism company.
The mango festivals are planned for Sunday, June 9, 16 and 23 from 6.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. at the Hanu Reddy Raghava Farms, Othivakkam, Guduvanchery
