Did you see that colour streak, over there, on the horizon of Goa?

Well, that’s the reflection from the Konkan Fruit Fest (KFF 2013). With Margao being the new base for the festivities this year, there’s definitely more than just a change. The exhibit-cum-sale promises to be grand and more colourful this time, with the most exotic fruits of Konkan region up for grabs, and, of course, taste.

KFF 2013 gives foodies a chance to savour the rare Konkan delights like mangosteen, red oil palm, jambal, kokum, bull’s heart, soursop, rose apple and more. And yes, for the ones with a sweet tooth that still remains unsatiated, the tropical delights are there too. Another highlight of KFF 2013 is the alluring range of wines. This treasure trove of fruits also brings to fore processed food specialities, including jam, pickle, cake, candies and more drool-worthy food products.

And for the ones, who like the sporty side of such festivals, KFF 2013 offers competitions with interesting themes like melon-carving, mango eating, dress like a fruit day, musical rendezvous and more. Plus, the old world feel of Goan markets are sure to make you enter a time warp. Check the flight booking option on ixigo and find regular flights to Goa. Here's Margao calling!
