The West Bengal government has applied for a Geographical Indication (GI) tag for Kohitur mango, which was sold for Rs 1,500 a piece last season. The mango is believed to have been cultivated by a royal breeder named Hakim Ada Mohammadi at the behest of the last Nawab of Bengal Siraj-ud-Daulah. The variety was reportedly only consumed by royals.
