On the method of cultivation, he mentioned, “I had purchased 1 kg seeds from an agricultural research institute in Varanasi. I sowed them in the first week of July. In around 40 days, it started growing.”

As per Rajput, no dangerous pesticides have been used throughout the cultivation of crimson ladyfinger.

Rajput mentioned {that a} minimal of 40-50 quintals and a most of 70-80 quintals could possibly be grown on an acre of land.

Speaking on gross sales and worth of his product, he mentioned, “This ladyfinger is 5-7 times more expensive than ordinary ladyfingers. It is being sold from Rs 75-80 to Rs 300-400 per 250 gram/500 gram in some malls.”
