The Dhalli apple market is filled with Scarlet 2, Red Chief Royal, King Roat and red gold apple varieties. On average, an estimated 65000 to 75000 boxes of apples are being brought by farmers from different areas of Shimla district.

“We have a target to beat the quality of imported apples and we are doing farming in the way that it produces good quality apples. We are using more and more organic methods so we are getting good quality apples this year. But we still require more factors like climate is not favourable here in order to produce imported apple quality, but still, we are trying,” said BL Sharma, another apple farmer.

Mohan Bhai, a trader from Gujarat said: “For the past five years we are getting best quality apples from Himachal. We have varieties like spur, scarlet and red chief are turning to be the best quality apple. They are also giving a fair price so we can buy it and the quality is good so we also get a good profit.”

The apple growers in rural Shimla, Kinnaur and Kullu districts and Mandi of state are expecting to get good prices during the upcoming apple season which have just started.

The apple in the market is reaching from Karsog in Mandi and Rohru, Theog, Kotgarh, Narkanda, Rampur, Jubble, Kotkhai and Chopal in Shimla district-considered as apple bowl of the state.
