Chuchuyimpang villagers under Mokokchung district have cultivated a different kind of orange and have successfully harvested the fruits. The orange variety is known as ‘Kinnow Orange’ also called Kashmir orange which was brought from Kashmir in 2006 through Rev. Dr. Anjo General Secretary NBCC and so far, this variety is grown only in this village in the entire district. With around 38 households engaged in the farming, there are about 1000 standing trees along the Tuensang Road at a place called “Ashi nu”. The harvest for the oranges started from last year which and is considered as quick harvest compared to normal oranges commonly found in the state which takes around 8 years for harvest. Going by this fast harvest, it is believed that farmers in the state would benefit economically as harvesting time is much less unlike the other common oranges found in the state.
