Ecuador: Temporada de mango con un 20% de merma y mayores calibres

















El clima no ha acompañado de la mejor forma a los productores de mango ecuatorianos, teniendo en su producción un efecto similar al que causó en Perú.





“A causa de El Niño no hemos tenido suficientes días de frío, lo que provocó aborto de frutos y retraso en el proceso de floración”,
afirma el Ingeniero Anthony Burgos, Jefe de Planta de Agriproducts, una de las empacadoras mas grandes del país, por la cual pasa el 35% del mango fresco que Ecuador exporta.





La temporada comenzó con bajos volúmenes de fruta y según datos de la empresa, la cual comenzó a recibir mango en su empacadora el 16 de septiembre, este año durante la semana 38 se recibieron unas 5.000 gavetas, mientras que en el mismo periodo de 2014 se recibieron unas 14.000.





“Al inicio tuvimos una reducción bastante drástica, sólo recibimos el 30% de los mangos que el año pasado, pero ya se está empezando a normalizar”,
afirma.




“Ésta es una temporada ambigua, la producción bajará un 20%, pero estamos recibiendo más frutos de mayor calibre”.




El año pasado Agriproducts exportó unas 14.800 toneladas de mango fresco a diversos mercados, teniendo como principal destino los EE.UU.




“Estamos aún a la espera de la comunicación oficial por parte de las autoridades, pero esperamos a partir de noviembre empezar a enviar mangos de mayor calibre hacia los Estados Unidos”.

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. 


It has considerable shelf life of a week after it is ripe making it exportable. 

It is also one of the most expensive kinds of mango and is grown mainly in Kokan region of western India.

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…
