Grafting expert and Padmashree horticulturist Haji Kaleemullah Khan has developed a sweeter variety of guava and named it after Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai. The new variety of guava resembles an apple in texture and is more sweet smelling and has more pulp. Kaleemullah also said, “One can get as many as 72 fruits on a 3.7 foot long tree“.

Kaleemullah is known for growing unique variety of fruits especially mangoes. In May last year, the 70-year-old Khan grafted a new variety of mango, which he named after batsman Sachin Tendulkar.

He won the Padmashree for growing more than 300 varieties of mangoes of different shapes and sizes on one tree. The tree is about 100 years old and he started working on it in 1987 to develop the craft of growing different varieties on one tree.
