Mumbai: Wish to eat Aishwarya? Well, now you can go for a sweeter variety of guava named after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, which is set to hit the market soon. As per reports, Padmashree horticulturist Haji Kaleemullah Khan has developed a guava and named it after the stunning actress.
As per sources, the new variety of guava resembles an apple in texture and is sweeter and pulpier. "The new variety of guava is very different in taste, smell and look from the traditional and normal varieties grown in the country," Kaleemullah was quoted as saying.
"It took almost eight years to develop this unique variety of guava and no chemical fertiliser or pesticide was used in developing the same," he adds.
Reports say that Kaleemullah is based in the mango-belt of Malihabad and it is being also said that to keep the product totally organic, neem oil was used as a pesticide.
"All measures were taken to ensure that the product is free from any possible side effect which chemical fertiliser or pesticide may have on fruits," he has said.
However, this isn’t the first time that a fruit is named after a celebrity. In the past too Kaleemullah had named a new variety of mango after cricket`s living legend Sachin Tendulkar.
