IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO— Kingston Fresh has announced that its mango crop from Peru is off to good start and volume is expected to climb with arrivals starting in mid January.

Kingston Fresh’s President, Ken Nabal, commented, “Mango sales remain brisk coming out of the Holidays and movement has been steady. Although our initial volumes from Peru were little light, we augmented the program with Kent mangoes from Ecuador to fully meet customer demand. With Ecuador production now finished for the season, we are increasing our imports from Peru to provide consistent volume through early March.” 

 Nabal added, “Our customers get excited when Peru Kents enter the market and we are expecting another great selling season. The overall quality of the first arrivals is very good and the eating quality of the fruit has been outstanding.”

Kingston has been steadily building its imports division in recent years and is aggressively adding to its portfolio of branded products. David O. Kingston, CEO, reflected, “For over 40 years our customers, with good reason, have had great confidence in the Kingston label. We remain steadfast in our expansion plans and are growing our footprint in Central and South America.” 

Kingston added, “Whether it’s our branded “Sugar Pines” from Costa Rica, mangoes from Peru or our newest program, Melons from Guatemala, rest assured that the Kingston brand will be prominently displayed along with its “Planting to Plate” brand slogan. We have kept this consistent on our packaging to emphasize our Company’s vertical integration and ongoing commitment to customer service, food safety and quality.”

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
