At 12,000 feet above sea level in West Tawang, you will find one of the most delicious apples.

Red in colour and juicy and sweet in taste, these apples make your taste-buds really happy.

There are mandarins and then there are the Khasi Mandarins. Certified as the best mandarin in India by the Union Ministry of Horticulture, Khasi Mandarins are fleshier and juicier.
