MANILA, Philippines - The Philippines may soon ship to the United States fresh mangoes from others parts of the country other than Guimaras Island, Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala said yesterday.

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) currently only allows the exportation of mangoes from Guimaras, an island municipality in Western Visayas.

Alcala said the export accreditation for Philippine mangoes is now being expanded to cover other mango-growing areas other than Guimaras.

He said the sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) requirements for Philippine mango exports have already been approved by the USDA. The Philippines, thus, is only waiting for the USDA to complete other regulatory requirements.

Mangoes grown in the island of Palawan, however, cannot be included for accreditation because of the prevailing pulp weevil infestation.

Production zones in the Philippines include Pangasinan, Zamboanga del Norte, Batangas, Cebu, Ilocos Norte, North Cotabato, and Iloilo among others.

Alcala said that if the exportation of mangoes is allowed in the US, this would give more room for investments in the sector because at present, domestic production cannot fully satisfy demand.

“The domestic supply of mango cannot fully satisfy domestic demand, but it would be beneficial for producers if we have additional market access,”
said Alcala.

Alcala said the US and the Philippines are also working on increasing export of bananas both in US mainland and defense commissaries.

Alcala said the US has also committed to support the Philippines’ bid for extension of its special restriction on rice.

The Philippines is still awaiting the consensus of the four remaining countries it is in talks with for the continued imposition of high duty on rice until 2017.

Philippine mango is considered the sweetest and most delicious mango variety in the world. Well, the Guimaras variety, as what they say. 

The market for native mango in the west particularly in America is so big. But limited only to Guimaras mango because of the sweetness and deliciousness of the said variety.

After US President Barack Obama visited Philppines, market for native mangoes of the Philippines opens more. 

According to news report that America now is opening the buying not only to Guimaras variety. The buying now will include native mangoes all over the archipelago of the country. 

That means mangoes in the farm of Pangasinan, Ilocos, and other provinces will have its share in the market.

All over the market, the yellow and yummy mango is being sold. Native mangoes of the country not only consume with spooning the ripe yellow flesh.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

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.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

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…
