Horticulturists began this unique experiment on the tree about five years ago.

Saharanpur, a district is mainly known for its hand-carved furniture, has now become famous for something else -- a unique mango tree that has 121 varieties of fruits growing on it.

Unbelievable though it may sound, this mango tree is in the Company Bagh area and is 15 years old.

Horticulturists began this unique experiment on the tree about five years ago and the purpose was to develop new varieties of mangoes and experiment with their taste.

Rajesh Prasad, the then Joint Director of Horticulture Experiment and Training Centre, planted 121 varieties of mango branches on a single mango tree.

"Different varieties of mango cuttings were planted on the branches of the indigenous mango tree. A separate nursery in charge was appointed to take care of the tree. Now different types of mangoes are found on this tree including Dussehra, Langra, Chaunsa, Ramkela, Amrapali, Saharanpur Arun, Saharanpur Varun, Saharanpur Saurabh, Saharanpur Gaurav and Saharanpur Rajiv," said a local official.

Besides these, other varieties of mangoes including Lucknow Safeda, Tommy at King's, Pusa Surya, Sensation, Rataul, Karmi Maldah Mango, Bombay, Smith, Mangifera Jalonia, Gola Bulandshahr, Laranku, LR Special, Alampur Benisha and Asojia Deoband are also growing on this tree.

Swastika, one of the sacred symbols used by many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia.
