A free trade agreement (FTA) with China would see a Central Australian mango wine exporter dancing in the street.
The Federal Government says Australian mango wine exporters currently face a Chinese import tariff of up to 40 per cent.
However, Ti Tree mango wine maker and exporter John Crayford says he has dealt with an import tariff north of 50 per cent on his fruit wine.
Following the signing of an FTA with China, Australian mango wine makers would see the current tariff disappear over four years.
Mr Crayford says he's very excited about the tariffs being removed.
"It would be great because our wine would be back to comparable prices with other wine," he said.
"It will be cheaper in China and so more people will be able to afford to buy more of it.
He says he's worked hard over the years to establish and maintain a business relationship with Chinese wine distributers.
"I went over in 2006 and obtained an agent in Guangzhou [south China].
"I sent the first container load [of mango wine] over in 2006 and I've been selling wine to them ever since.
"I've been over [to China] about 14 times but I don't go over anymore because we are well established now.
"We had help with the Government when we first went over.
"We went over with Austrade and they helped us find our agents in China," he said.

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…
