USA : Panorama Produce continues to grow mango deal

by Tim Linden | September 30, 2014

Eric Nagelberg of Panorama Produce in Mamaroneck, NY, said the firm’s mango business continues to grow steadily.

“Each year we grow, which is a great because it is a very important crop for us,”
said Nagelberg, a son of one of Panorama Produce’s founders.

Jeff (Eric’s dad) and Rick Nagelberg started Panorama Produce more than 30 years ago. 

Mangoes have grown into one of the firm’s top items. Initially, the company brokered mangoes 12 years ago, but now Panorama has become an importer, bringing in mangos from many different production regions on a 12-month basis.

Nagelberg said the firm’s location — northeast of New York City not too far from the Connecticut-New York border — is an advantage when dealing with the company’s customers in and around the New York metropolitan area. 

Most of the mango exporters tend to be in Miami, “and so we think it helps in working with our own customers.”

The firm has customers across the board including wholesalers, foodservice operators and retailers. Its customer list is also diverse geographically. 

Panorama has a large percentage of its customers in the Northeast but Panorama does ship to many areas of the country, including Florida, Texas, California, Chicago and other places in the Midwest.

Besides its many mango deals, Panorama Produce also has a very strong watermelon program and brings in a lot of vegetables and melons from the West Coast to its East Coast customers.

Nagelberg called this past year “a challenging but good year,” and he looks forward to continuing to meet the challenges of an evolving marketplace.

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…
