Cultivar 'Fazli'

Fazli is an mango cultivar from the Eastern regions of South Asia, primarily grown in Bangladesh and India (states of West Bengal and Bihar). It is a late maturing fruit, available after other varieties. Fazlis are commonly used in jams and pickles in South Asian cuisine. Each mango can be quite large, going up to a kilo. The northern area of Bangladesh, Rajshahi and Chapainawabganj districts are the major producers of fazli.[1][2][3] It is also grown in the Malda district of West Bengal.[4] An important commercial variety, it is increasingly being exported.[4]

In 2009, India has filed a Geographical Indication for the name Fazli, but this is likely to be shared with Bangladesh.[5] There is a dispute over this issue regarding registration to the WTO manual by India.[6][7]
