Costa Rica: La exportación de mango genera 4,19 millones de dólares en el primer cuatrimestre

















Europa, principal mercado de la fruta

















La Unión Europea y los Estados Unidos son los principales compradores del mango costarricense, llegando hasta un 74% de las exportaciones de la fruta y logrando aumentar las posibilidades de las empresas ticas por la ventaja de exportación que tienen hacia estos destinos, pues tiene mayores facilidades de ingreso por la relación comercial ya existente.










Sin embargo, la fruta debe cumplir con los requisitos establecidos por los países importadores.






Además de los regulaciones de cada país, Costa Rica debe certificar que el mango va libre de la mosca de la fruta, por lo que se realiza un programa de monitoreo y trampeo de moscas de la fruta en las plantaciones, un muestreo y disección de fruta en la planta empacadora de cada uno de los lotes que ingresan, sí como un tratamiento hidrotérmico a los frutos de exportación. Con respecto a Europa, este último tratamiento no se solicita.






Durante la temporada de febrero a mayo de este año, se exportó aproximadamente 250 contenedores de fruta, lo que representa 1.131.112 cajas de 4 kilos; de ese total, 957.744 cajas de mango tenían como destino el mercado europeo, principalmente los Países Bajos, Portugal, Alemania, Inglaterra, Italia y España.









Para cumplir con esta demanda, operaron seis empacadoras que recibieron fruta de alrededor de 45 productores, quienes en total tenían aproximadamente 1.400 hectáreas en producción para la exportación.









Cabe destacar que para poder exportar mango a estos mercados se requiere un esfuerzo conjunto entre el sector productor y el Servicio Fitosanitario del Estado (SFE).

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 ???

Alphonso (mango)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia








Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor.

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…
