    The Grape Research Station in Rangareddy is hosting an annual exhibition and sale of grapes. However, this time, the event is facing some issues. Unlike previous years, where the exhibition lasted for two weeks, all the grape varieties were sold out within five days. Only a few varieties were displayed at the station, which is usually known for showcasing over 50 varieties. These grapes are being sold at high prices, much to the disappointment of visitors.

    Visitors who came to enjoy the fruit yard and buy grapes were surprised to find that the prices at the station were much higher than the local markets. The grapes, usually sold for Rs 50 per kg, were being sold for Rs 300 per kg at the station. Some visitors expressed their concern about the decreasing number of grape varieties available each year.

    The rate cards at the event site clearly stated that all varieties were priced at Rs 300 per kg. This led to comparisons with the ‘Numaish’ market, where the prices inside and outside are different. Visitors felt that the station, which is supposed to promote affordable and healthy grape varieties, is only focusing on a few varieties for the exhibition.

    One visitor mentioned that while commercial varieties with potentially harmful pesticides are flooding the city markets, the station should offer healthier alternatives. However, no steps have been taken in this regard. When contacted, officials at the station declined to comment on the high prices charged at the exhibition-cum-sale.
