Haribhanga mango of Rangpur

Haribhanga Mango of Rangpur district is appreciated all over Bangladesh as a delicious mango without fiber. The source of this popular mango is Tekani village of Khoragach in Mithapukur upazila of Rangpur. There is a well-known legend about the naming of broken mangoes. Since Tekani and its surrounding areas were rain-prone areas, separate arrangements had to be made to water the saplings. At that time, a tree dweller named Nafal Uddin Paikar first started this mango.

Initially, this mango was named Maldia. He made a filter with earthen pots under the tree to water the mango tree. One day, who will break this pot of soil? The tree continues to grow in the broken pot and catches a lot of mangoes during the season. When this delicious mango was taken to the market for sale, farmer Nafal Uddin said that this delicious variety of mango has been grown from the tree of the broken pot. Since then, this tree has become known as the haribhanga mango tree.

The mother tree planted by Nafal Uddin, the root-bearer of Haribhanga, is still standing high in Tekani village of Khoratree of Mithapukur of Rangpur. The ancient tree is about 63 years old. Thousands of pens have been made from this tree and the saplings of Haribhanga have been spread.
