Anjeer cultivation

I used to purchase small round pieces of anjeer (fig) for my parents for their better health.  They have vital health benefits, improve the immune system, reduce fat, are good for the breathing system, maintain blood pressure, and are useful in curing many diseases from the root. I have to pay Rs 100 for 150 to 200 gram figs. 

Suddenly I noticed it’s very costly and started researching about it. Fig trees are also found in the villages of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, and the Himalayan regions. Due to unawareness of the health benefits and huge profit there is hardly any cultivation of anjeer done in hills. It is known as timla in the hills.

In my old post, I said I am searching for such cultivation that can stop village migration, and already shared some crops with you. Recently I have written about Bedu fruit farming which is similar to anjeer. Now I am mentioning about anjeer or fig. Anjeer and Bedu both are costly trees in Uttarakhand and can be helpful to stop migration if people start their cultivation.

It is an edible fruit and can be eaten without processing, people eat this fruit directly after plucking from the tree. 

Key notes – Fig processed business is more profitable than ordinary cultivation.
