Orlando, Fla – The National Mango Board (NMB) is inviting mango industry leaders to step forward and participate in the nominations process to become a board member. Board members have the chance to contribute in shaping the future and direction of the NMB in upcoming years.




The NMB is currently seeking nominations for one District III importer position to complete a current term beginning immediately upon appointment.




Candidates must meet certain requirements to be eligible and be willing to serve the mango industry by fulfilling board member roles and responsibilities.







The NMB is made up of mango importers, a first handler, domestic producers and foreign producers who dedicate themselves to the mission of the NMB – to increase consumption of fresh mangos in the U.S. through innovative research and promotional activities, while fostering a thriving industry.



The board members work closely with the NMB staff to 
carry out marketing, research and industry relations programs to benefit the mango industry.





The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture ultimately makes the appointments to the board from the final slate of nominees. For the importer position, two nominees will be forwarded to the Secretary of Agriculture.




To narrow the selection from many nominees to the two required for submission, mango industry members of District III will vote to select the two nominees for the position from which the Secretary of Agriculture will choose.








Mango industry members who are interested in serving as a member of the NMB should visit mango.org/nominations for complete details, updates, and the necessary forms.


The deadline for District III nominations are to be received at the NMB office by June 8, 2015.







 Questions about the nominations and appointment process can be directed to Anna Deschamps-Polonia at APolonia@mango.org or by phone at 407-629-7318 x112.






The NMB encourages industry members without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, size of business/operation, and marital or family status or other basis protected by U.S. law to participate in NMB activities and seek a position on the NMB.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

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.
