Mysuru:  ‘Mango Mela,’ the sale of king of fruits, organised by the Horticulture Department will be held at Curzon Park from June 1 to 5, said Horticulture Senior Assistant Director G.D. Dinesh Kumar.

More than 40 mango growers from different parts of Mysuru District had participated in a meeting regarding the Mango Mela. A decision was taken at this meeting to hold the Mela from June 1 to 5. On May 28, a clear picture will emerge on how many growers will participate in the Mela and how many stalls are required, he said, speaking to Star of Mysore yesterday.

Nipah warning: The mango growers who will participate in the Mela have already been cautioned about Nipah virus.
