10 December 2023, New Delhi: It is a medium-tall variety commercially grown in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Karnataka, and Bihar.
Its unique fruit quality has made Rasthali popular and a highly prized cultivar for table purposes.
Fruits are yellowish green throughout their development but turn pale yellow to golden yellow after ripening. Fruit is very tasty with a good aroma. Longer crop duration, severe susceptibility to Fusarium wilt, requirement of bunch cover to protect fruits from sun cracking and formation of hard lumps in fruits make crop production more expensive.
