The story over the hop shooting was viral following a tweet from an IAS officer along with a news report.
Claims that a vegetable called hop hop is being cultivated by a farmer in Bihar’s Aurangabad district and is being sold for Rs. 1 loop per kilogram is said to have turned out to be fake. After a tweet from an IAS officer with two photos and quoting a news report, the story spread widely on social media, with many people talking about conical vegetables online.
“One kilogram of this vegetable costs about Rs 1 lakh! The most expensive vegetables in the world, ‘stalks’ are being cultivated by Amresh Singh, an entrepreneurial farmer from Bihar, the first in India. It could be a game changer for Indian farmers,” IAS officer Supriya Sahu had posted on Twitter on March 31st. The tweet received over 24,000 “likes” and was republished over 5,000 times.
A team from the Indian newspaper Dainik jagran visited on Friday the Bihar village of Amresh Singh, the man at the heart of history, and discovered that no such culture was being planted there. Local people said they had never heard of such a culture growing in the area, according to the report.
Contacted by phone, Mr Singh reportedly said the production was in Nalanda district, about 172km away. When the newspaper team went to Naladna, he said the harvest was in Aurangabad.
Saurabh Jorwal, Aurangabad County Magistrate, told Dainik Jagran, “Some officials from Patna asked about the production of hop shots. There is no such cultivation in Aurangabad district.”
According to Jagran, Amresh Singh has grown black rice and wheat in the past, but not hop shots.
NDTV had also published an article based on the tweet of the IAS officer.
What are hop shots?
Hopi – called humulus lupulus – is a perennial plant. A native of North America and Europe, hop shooting was believed to be a bad bar until its properties were known. According to the website agrifarming.in, hop shots have “antibacterial effects” and are used for “bitterness”, “flavoring” and as a “stability agent in beer”.
