Piñata Honey Gold Mangoes













About Honey Gold




Highly aromatic Honey Gold mangoes have a yellow-orange glossy skin and an intense, punchy, distinctive mango flavour. A small seed means there is more delicious, fibreless flesh to enjoy and the texture is smooth and fibre-free. Ideal for fresh-eating, they're juicy, yet firm enough to hold their shape when cut. An average of 500-600 grams each, Honey Gold mangoes have an appealing orange flesh and exceptional shelf life.









History


Honey Gold mangoes were first bred by chance in Queensland's Rockhampton region in 1991 and are the result of a Kensington Pride off-type pollinated by an unknown variety. When the original tree first bore fruit, the grower – recognising its unique taste and appearance – named it Honey Gold. Piñata Farms bought the plant breeders' rights to the variety in 2002 and sent the first fruit to market in 2009. The original tree still bears fruit today.
Growing regions






Between Piñata Farms and our third party family farmers, we have some 140,000 trees under cultivation over 500 hectares in Katherine and Mataranka (Northern Territory), Giru, Bowen, Dimbulah, Mutchilba, Rockhampton, Yarwun, Benaraby, Bundaberg, Wamuran and Gatton (Queensland), Byron Bay and Coffs Harbour (New South Wales), Robinvale and Mildura (Victoria) and Kununurra and Carnarvon (Western Australia). We send up to 500,000 trays to market each season.










Seasonality 










Our geographic spread means we can progressively produce fruit between November and March, beginning the season in northern Australia in late spring and ending it in the southern states in autumn. Honey Gold mangoes are available at leading supermarkets and independent retail outlets around Australia.

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…
