A horticulture Product
Madurai Malli is Jasmine. Madurai malli has become the first horticultural product from Tamil Nadu to get the GI tag. The round and oblong-shaped Madurai malli differs from other jasmine varieties in the pattern of transformation of petal colours from the harvest to utilization. The fragrance of the jasmine grown in this region is superior to that of others because of the heavy accumulation of ‘jamone’ and ‘alpha terpineol’, the alkaloids responsible for the fragrance. Another specialty is the thickness of its petals.
