Fig fruit from Pune's Purandhar, which has a geographical indication (GI) tag, has for the first time been exported. A 10-kg consignment of the highly perishable fruit was exported to Germany, Rohan Ursal, Chairman of the Purandhar Highland Farmer’s Producers Company said. The produce of figs has a high demand but growers haven't sought its full potential yet, Ursal added.
