Eryvan Pires, Fruitmarket:

"Mango market situation differs from last year"

The mango market is currently under-supplied. Fewer volumes are coming in from Peru and Brazil. 

The Brazilian season has nearly come to an end, and Peru began later. 

Both countries were only able to ship small numbers in the first three weeks of the year. "Prices are rather high because of this," says Eryvan Pires of Fruitmarket.

"And that will continue for a few weeks, because until week 6, shipments from Peru will be very limited. This means the market has controlled volumes until week 9."

Good prices

The prices are about 25% above the annual average. 

Eryvan is satisfied with the price levels. "This is good for all parties involved: growers, importers and consumers. When prices go down too much, only the traders profit, while the grower suffers."

Big contrast

Eryvan explains that mango is a biennial crop:

"One year there is too much, the next year less comes in. But the weather has also affected the productions in Peru and Brazil. The Brazilian harvest was late this year, and Peru is also facing a delay now. At the moment, only a few shipments with 'fibreless' varieties are arriving from Brazil. The shipments from Peru will increase weekly, starting next week." 

Compared to the same time last year, he sees a big contrast. 

"Back then, there were a lot more mangoes. During the first weeks of the year, there was excess supply, we were still going through the stocks from Brazil when Peru also came with many volumes."


Looking back on 2014, he says it was a positive year for mangoes. 

"The quality from all origins was generally good. The prices for growers from Peru, Spain and Brazil, the main suppliers, were satisfactory and good volumes were sold."

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.
