NMB MANGO RIPENING PROGRAM A FLOP













IMO NOTE: Only non Hot Water Treated mangoes can be ripened with any success. Hot Water Treatment and Irradiation destroy any Nutritional value in the fruit, making a proposed "Ripening" program worthless.


This is nothing but "Smoke & Mirrors" to make customers believe that there is some added value to this worthless excercise.

The National mango Board (NMB) hosted a free webinar on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 4 p.m. EDT. 





The webinar discussed the Mango Handling & Ripening Protocol in detail, as well as best practices for mango handling at the retail level. 




Speakers included Dennis Kihlstadius from Produce Technical Services and Wendy McManus, Retail Program Manager at the NMB. During the webinar, the experts provided best practices and recommendations for stores and distribution centers that included improving temperature management at all distribution levels during transportation and storage, as well as mango displays at store level.





To enhance consumers’ mango eating experience, we have invested in the Ripe Ready to Eat Mango program to help the mango industry deliver ripened fruit for U.S. consumers to enjoy. 




Mango importers, wholesalers and brokers, retail distribution center and quality assurance experts as well as buyers, category managers and merchandisers were encouraged to attend.





This webinar is only available in English.

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…
