@MX6: Is this similar to the one near Morachi Chincholi? I remember you mentioning about the Agro tourism thing at the Team BHP meet.

@ AP: You are at it again! Hats off to you mate.

This is real Agro tourism. The one at Morachi Chincholi is ok, but is highly priced for a joyride in a tractor and night meals.

Yeah, this is real agro tourism.

This is the place where i intended to arrange team-bhp meet but high cost, time and other things are speed breakers.

The field of the best fruit, sometimes, this is figured in sukameva/dry fruit category. can you guess?
Agro tourism-11.jpg

Agro tourism-12.jpg

Agro tourism-13.jpg


count the number of fruit called FIG.
Agro tourism-14a.jpg

Look at those leaves, simple, isn't it.
sometimes, those leaves can make big hole in your money pocket. how?
Agro tourism-15.jpg



Those leaves named TUTI are feed to worm named SILKWORM.
Now, i hope, you got the relation between leaves of TUTI and your money pocket.

Wow. I didn't know figs grew in 12mati! When you said dry fruits, I thought, can't be figs. Then when I scroll down, they are actually FIGS!

12mati is known for sugar and grapes, not for fig.

Best fig in India is cultivated very near to pune, just @30 km away at saswad.

If you noticed, the entrance board at this farm states as model farm.

This farm belongs to family of political heavy weight from 12mati.

I will finish this small photologue today within next 2 hours.
