As for now, Sankalp has named the mangoes Damini, after the name of his mother. In a recent interview Parihar told that-

“Later, we researched about this variety and found the real name. But it is still Damini for me.”

Sankalp’s wife Rani said variety of people has shown interest to buy Miyazaki mangoes. She said a Mumbai-based jeweler is ready to pay ₹21,000 for a mango. But, the couple has decided not to sell the mangoes to anyone yet, and instead they would grow them and collect the harvest for further season too.
