We are thrilled to announce the 2012 Mango Season.
We plan a full season with all varieties of mangoes from India and from Pakistan. We will be conducting our Orchard survey by the end of February. We have requested that the US inspectors be available between April 15th and July 25th in India.
This will enable us to bring in all the varieties from North and South India. We have made many changes to the Pakistani mango supply chain to improve selection and quality of the fruit- we are confident that this will result in a great 2012 season!!
Following is an update on the 2012 season for Mango from the Indian subcontinent.
Alphonso Mango: Alphonso Mango season is progressing very well. Flowering is excellent and it looks like a bumper crop this year. This year flowering is a little early, so fruit will be available earlier than normal. We hope to get from Ratnagiri and Devgad- last year Devgad did not have much fruit.
One product of JK Export is World’s sweetest mangoes which taste incomparably better than any Pakistani, Indian, Caribbean or Latin American mango variety. They have less pulp, sweeter in taste and their flavor is more intense. These mangoes are ripened in the severe heat of Punjab terrain (most fertile land in Pakistan) to reach to the highest level of sweetness and are a nutrition gift of nature. This high quality fruit is available in different varieties, from May to August every year. These mangoes are collected from remote areas in Pakistan and domestic transportation with high air fare prices may increased the CNF slightly high, but its quality is in SUPERIOR ranking than any present variety of mangoes in the World. We assure it will be the fast moving product in your business…
Being a mango cultivator is a fun job, far more than you imagine. You can graft a new kind of mango on an existing mango tree; the male and female chromosomes of two different mangoes can be used to produce a new hybrid; a single mango tree in Malihabad near Lucknow grows 350 different varieties. The mind boggles at all the combinations and permutations possible.
There are 1,200 different varieties in the world, of which about a thousand are found in India, where the mango originated. Mango, India’s national fruit and also Pakistan’s, derives its name from the Malayalam “manna” via Portugese.

At the recently concluded Mango Festival in New Delhi, mango cultivators, mainly from Uttar Pradesh who own hundreds of acres of orchards, displayed over 400 varieties of mangoes. Very few of these were for sale outside the two air-conditioned halls. “DO NOT TOUCH,” a signpost warne…
IMO NOTE: It seems that this technology could have helped Mexico jump the gun on fruit maturity (seems like EMEX has this problem every year).
CALAVO embraced this technology, and look where they are today.
The EMEX/NMB brotherhood never seem to get the important issues...
US: Mango sorting with IQA - ready for production
A presentation by Mr. Valery Quenon of Aweta G&P about electronic sorting of Mango will occur at the Outreach Meeting in Mexico with the National Mango Board and EMEX A.C. Jalisco, Mexico, November 24, 2009
Development: Reedley, CA., USA. – November 17, 2009 – During the summer of 2009, the Aweta IQA, (Internal Quality Analyzer), and AFS (Acoustic Firmness Sensor) were prepped and tested for the selection of fresh packed Mango based upon characteristics such as levels of sweetness, maturity, firmness, and percent of moisture content. This system allows the packer to more accurately pack and ship mango of consistent quality.
