When we say fake mangoes, people may think that they are machine-made mangoes. No, the explanation would be different. These mangoes plucked from trees, then some artificial process makes them ripe very fast, then they are sent to the market. That is why they are called fake mangoes. These fake mangoes are ripened with the help of calcium carbide. Whereas its use is completely banned because the fruits which are ripened with its help are very dangerous to human health. It is experts’ warning that the mangoes ripened with calcium carbide can cause very serious damage to health.

Calcium carbide is easily available in the market. It is a type of stone, which is why people also call it lime. Calcium carbide is placed in a bundle amongst raw mangoes to ripen them. The mangoes are then covered with gunny sacks and kept in an airtight place for 3-4 days. The mangoes thus ripen. Calcium carbide produces acetylene gas when not exposed to moisture. Any type of fruit can easily be ripened by this process.
