Update from India by variety as season approaches ...


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.

The mango cultivar that attempts to make peace between India and Pakistan ....

Er, well, that should settle the debate between Dashehari and Chausa lovers. 

While the Dashehari of Malihabad is the best-selling mango of India, Chausa lovers wait the entire mango season to savour their favourite mango. 

CISH Lucknow tried both male-female combinations to create a cross between the two but only one worked. 

They haven’t given this one a catchy name yet. 

One day it may be selling in the market next to your house.

Five great mango cultivars you probably have never heard of ...

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…

SENBIKIYA: Possibly the world's most expensive produce store ...

Posted on June 02, 2003

    Right at the top of the escalator there is a small fruit shop/cafe called Senbikiya that is famous for its expesive gifts. 

I'm sure you can find more expensive fruits at Kinokuniya but this was still impressive to say the least. 

500 yen for a, yes only one mikan orange ($4.20 USD)

10,000 yen for two mangos ($85 USD)

and... 15,000 yen for 40 cherries ($130 USD) say about $3.25/cherry

EMEX: What ever happenend to Acoustic firmness sensor ??? ...

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...
