This cultivar is the pride and joy of Goa. In fact, this fiberless, firm-fleshed variety often fetches a price significantly higher than the alphonso. In 2012 some buyers willingly purchased 12 early season mankurads at the price of $80 to $100. The quantity of fruits is heavily contingent on the temperature of the flowering period. Also, if the weather is too cold or hot during the tender stages, the fruits drop prematurely.
