The beginning of the famous Satkara in Sylhet

Satkara is a popular fruit in Sylhet region. The fruit is flattened to look flat, the dough is thick, the amount of shell is too low, the tuck and the tita. The average weight of each fruit is about 120 grams. In Sylhet, meat is cooked with satakars. It is the traditional cuisine of the region. Satkara has the reputation of being a guest in Sylhet. Every style is being created with Satakara. Cooking with meat creates an interesting olfactory diet. Basically the popular khata (swinging talk) is made with the bones of the Satkara and the cow. Besides, roasted meat is also made. This is so important in the Sylhet region for scent.


Satkara’s full name, Citrus macroptera Montrouz ( var. Annamensis Tanaka ), is becoming known to researchers at the present time. Professor Nesaur Mia is a renowned professor at Sylhet MC College, who has a PhD degree in plant science from Dhaka University.

According to Professor Nessauer Mia, seven are the result of the mountainous region of Assam, India. The first cultivation of seven fruits started in Assam state of India. Beginning in the early eighteenth century, the cultivators of this area started cultivating the fruit. It is grown in the northeastern region of Shela, Meghalaya, Tripura, Mizoram, Manipur. The fruit is also grown in Jintapur, Bianibazar, Goainghat and Srimangal areas of the border areas of Sylhet. However, there is no production of satakars in these areas anymore. In the Sylhet border area of ​​Bangladesh, there are no longer seven commercial cultivars. Almost all of the seven available in the market are imported from India.


Satakara leaves are so different from all other lemon national fruit leaves that it is possible to identify seven trees by a single leaf. The leaves are clearly divided into two sections. A part associated with the branch. The first part of Satakara alone is large. Which is not seen as a result of any other citrus or lemon. Therefore, it is possible to identify seven trees only by a single leaf.


Like other talk national fruits, there is plenty of vitamin C available in seven. It destroys, enhances the taste of food and helps digestion. Its natural flavor or aroma is quite attractive. It has 20 ingredients.


The advanced high-yielding varieties discovered by Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute are Bari Satkara – 1. It was invented in the 21st. This type of tree is medium sized, medium shrub and shrub. Flowers grow in the trees during the month of Chaitra-Baishakh. In the autumn its fruits begin to ripen. The fruit is on average 5 grams in size. The ripe fruit is light yellow. It is also cultivated in the Chittagong Hill Tracts besides Sylhet.


Like orange, it is possible to breed both pens and seeds. The basic tightening and coupling or t-bedding method is used. Read this article to learn the rules of consolidating Satkara .

Climate and soil

The mountainous region is called Satkara’s paradise. Seeds are suitable for cultivation in high mountain areas with sufficient rainfall. Seven crops are cultivated on fertile and sandy loam soil. On average, 8 to  20  cm of rainfall and 25 to 5 ° C of Taupe are good for seven cultivars. Similarly, the hilly areas of Sylhet Division and Chittagong Division are best for seven cultivars.

Making land

Prior to making the land, the previous crop staples, weeds should be cleaned. In the hilly region, the land has to be scraped by spade and the soil is turned upside down. The ground floor should be cultivated with landscape and ladders. Satakara saplings have to be planted by stairs in the hills. Or trees can be planted by creating a spherical bed at a certain distance.

Planting and caring for seedlings

The month of Baishakh-Jyastya and Vadra-Ashwin is the perfect time to plant sapara seeds. The hole has to be 3 cm x 4 cm x 4 cm in size. The hole should be made 5 to 20 days before planting. Each hole should be well mixed with 5 kg of compost, 3-5 kg ​​of ash, 5 grams TSP, 20 grams mop and 20 grams lime. Water should be irrigated if the hole is filled. Seedlings should be planted after 3-5 days after fertilizer application. After planting the seedlings, they should be covered with peels. Learn more about Potential Brussels Sprouts .

Applying fertilizer

For satikara, rotten cow dung, urea, TSP and mop fertilizers should be applied every year. As the tree ages, the amount of fertilizer will increase.


Trees 6-2 years old –
Dung 1-3 kg
urea  5-222  grams
TSP 3-5  grams
mop  1-3 grams


3-4-year-old trees –
Muck 10-15 kg
urea,  270300  g
TSP  140-170  g
mop  400-500  grams


5-10-year-old trees –
Muck 0-5 kg
of urea  500-600  grams
TSP  400-450  g
mop  500-550  grams


The 10-year-old trees + –
dung 5-30 kg
of urea  600-700  grams
TSP  450-500  g
mop  600-680  grams

The rules for applying fertilizers

It should be well spread around the tree. Have to be mixed into the ground. The specified amount of fertilizer should be applied in three installments every year in February, May and October.

Irrigation and drainage of water

Irrigation should be given 2-5 times during drought. This will increase the yield and quality of satakara. Water cannot be stored at the base of the tree. It increases the prevalence of bacterial diseases. Drain the drain on the side so that the water can drain through the drain.

Pruning and weeding

The fodder made by the organ system has to be broken. The stalk can not be kept up to 3-2 m from the tree. The branches of the tree should be kept small from the mulch. No more than 3-5 branches of a tree can be allowed to grow. The diseased pulses have to be cut. Sprinkle pulse with Bordeaux paste. At the beginning and end of the monsoon, weeds need to be weighed down with light splash around the tree. Read more Satak and lemonade insects and pathogen remedies .

Collecting fruit

The seven-to-one maturity is light green and crisp. The fruits must be collected without injury. Harvester is good for collecting fruit.
