Yield possible in any type of soil 

Some time ago farmer Mishrilal Rajput had gone to the Indian Institute of Vegetable Research Center in Banaras. From here he got information about this variety of lady’s finger. After this he himself decided to cultivate red ladyfinger. Mishrilal Rajput purchased one kg of red ladyfinger seeds from the institute for Rs 2400. Then planted these seeds on his half acre of land.

Mishrilal Rajput told in a conversation with Kisan of India that its crop gets ripened sooner than the normal green ladyfinger. Once planted, the yield of red ladyfinger is ready in four to five months. 

What is most special about red ladyfinger is that it is possible to cultivate red ladyfinger in any type of soil. Up to 50 ladybugs can be produced in one plant.

Agricultural scientists keep doing many experiments related to agriculture every day, due to which the capacity of production as well as income increases. The reason for these experiments is how to enable the farmer in the cultivation of red ladyfinger. The Indian Vegetable Research Institute took 8 to 10 years to prepare this variety named ‘Kashi Lalima’. Red ladyfinger is also beneficial for patients of heart disease, cholesterol and diabetes.
