FRESKA PROJECTS STABLE MANGO SUPPLIES FOR 2014 MEXICAN MANGO SEASON


























US: Mexico mango imports making up for slow start













After a slow start to the Mexican mango season, imports of Mexican fruit have increased, making up for low volumes earlier in the season.









“The season started slow,”
said Tom Hall, sales manager for Freska Produce in Oxnard, Calfornia. 










“The weather caused the delay, with colder weather affecting bloom, which delayed flowering on trees.” 





As a result, shipments from Mexico, beginning in April and continuing through most of the month, were tight. 






But Hall added that recent volumes of fruit have picked up and have made up for a slow last month.







“Volumes are good now, and they've been consistent, so we don't foresee any lack of supplies,”
said Hall. 







“We anticipate going to the first or second week in September with the supplies from Mexico, depending on rain in the Los Mochis area.” 




He also noted that demand has been steady through the Cinco de Mayo holiday, and it should be strong going into Memorial Day at the end of the month. 




"Prices have been good for larger sizes, around size nine and larger, but have been weaker for smaller sizes."







“This looks like a typical Mexican import season for mangos,”
said Hall. 





“There was a bumper crop last season, and this season started a little late and a little behind, but the season is not too much behind from where it was last season, and we're making up for lost time.”

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....

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 ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

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…
