El volumen de importación de mango se ha incrementado un 62% entre 2005 y 2013, pero este año los problemas meteorológicos en Latinoamérica afectaron al normal crecimiento de las compras de mango por parte de los Estados Unidos.




“Perú, Ecuador y Brasil han mostrado bajas en la exportación a Estados Unidos este año, ya que el fenómeno meteorológico de El Niño, ha causado algunos problemas con las cosechas”,
comenta Ángela Serna, gerente de Comunicaciones de la National Mango Board (NMB).

Según Leo Ortega, director de Investigaciones de la NMB, si se tiene en consideración el volumen importado entre enero y septiembre, el volumen de importación en 2014 ha disminuido en aproximadamente un 11% con relación a 2013 (366.905 t vs. 326.012 t), principalmente debido a factores meteorológicos en México y Brasil. 






En el caso del mango ecológico, la caída ha sido aún más fuerte, al reducirse su volumen de importación un 52% en comparación con 2013 en el periodo comprendido entre enero y septiembre (52,949 t vs. 111,404 t).





Esta caída en las importaciones no ha cambiado la posición de México, quien es líder indiscutible en el mercado estadounidense y representa el 66% del volumen importado, seguido por Perú, con un 12%, y Brasil, con un poco menos del 7%. 





En lo que respecta a variedades, de acuerdo con Kristine Concepción, directora de Relaciones con la Industria de la NMB, la variedad de mango amarilla Ataulfo está teniendo cada vez más demanda, si bien la mayor cuota del mercado es aún propiedad del Tommy Atkins.

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…
