I wasn't satisfied with the price of the Harumanis mangoes sold at fruit stalls all over Perlis these few days... These stalls are selling these mangoes at RM12 to RM14 per kilo lately. A friend of mine told me that it was RM16 per kilo last Friday. I was furious on hearing this and put up a post on my wall in my Facebook account, condemning the Perlis folks for tarnishing the good name of the Perlis government..
Actually, what happened was that there were a few fruits available and it exceeded the demand. Those sellers made some illegal money by selling them twice the legal price.. That was the case...
I dropped by the Bukit Bintang orchard this morning and found out the price was reasonable. That is the price inside the orchard. There are stalls selling outside the orchard and the price is a little bit higher.. So, be careful !!!
I took some photos inside the orchard:

Welcome to Perlis... Come have a taste of our very own variety of mango - the HARUMANIS mangoes..
Have a nice day..
