Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) official sources said lotkon is mostly cultivated at homesteads. The saplings need a little space to grow up. A total of 200 saplings can be planted on one bigha of land, producing up to an average of 5 tonnes of lotkon a season.Two lotkon saplings need maximum 8 to 10 feet space to grow fast. After plantation, the sapling blooms within three or four years. The fruit is small and somewhat similar to litchi. The juicy fruit has more nutritional value than that of common fruits. Lotkon is nice in colour, sweetness and flavour. Per kilogram of lotkon is now selling at Tk 70 to Tk80.
