Modi apples are here! The popular apple variety from Italy has officially entered India by appointing IG International as its authorised distributor for the country. Even as owners of this patented club variety hope to get a strong footing in India's growing fruit market, the name of the variety has no connection, whatsoever, with the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. The variety was developed by CIV (Consorzio Italiano Vivaisti) --a group of specialist plant breeders set up in Italy in 2007-- by crossing the popular Liberty and Gala varieties of apples. According to the company, the variety was named after the artist Amedeo Modigliani, called "Modi" by his friends,who became famous for his female portraits with shiny and bright colours. Tarun Arora, director of IG International, said, "Modi apples are a club variety and it would be the single largest club variety to be imported into India. These apples have already become available at the Star Bazar stores and agricultural markets of metro cities.“

On the eve of a new harvest season, tea planters in Darjeeling Himalayan region are expecting bright first flush output after peak winter time dormant period. Credit goes to overall post monsoon and wintertime favorable weather condition. The hope comes from the fact that including foothills in Terai, Dooars as well as Darjeeling hills have witnessed spell of deep chill this winter with minimum temperature going down much below usual level at many places. "We are expecting favorable output right at the onset of next season as overall monsoon remained more or less in our favour," said K. K. Mintri, veteran planter and Chairman Terai Indian Planters Association. "Beside expected low temperature, we had good Sunshine too during this winter. Proper Sunshine helps bushes to have higher degree of photosynthesis and thus better growth of new buds," said Senior Planter Sujit Seal.
