Señaló gerente general de APEM, Juan Carlos Rivera Ortega

La preocupación pasa por saber en qué momento llegarán las lluvias, si comienzan tarde (mediados de febrero) no habrá problemas, pero si las precipitaciones se registran de manera temprana (diciembre) sí habría problemas porque los caminos colapsarían lo que dificultaría sacar la fruta de los fundos.

( En la próxima campaña de mango (2015/2016) sí habrá producción, aseguró el gerente general de la Asociación de Productores y Exportadores de Mangos (APEM) Juan Carlos Rivera Ortega.

Indicó que para que haya producción, antes hubo floración y este año se presentó una floración diferenciada porque hay campos muy floreados y otros no tanto, pero destacó que por ese aspecto los productores y exportadores están tranquilos.

“Sí hay floración y por lo tanto habrá una producción de mango destinada para exportación y también para el procesamiento, por ello las empresas van a iniciar las negociaciones para exportación, asimismo, las plantas de procesamiento van a reactivarse”
, comentó.

Indicó que aún es incierto saber la magnitud del Fenómeno El Niño, por ello señaló que, si se presentara un fenómeno con lluvias tardías como el 2002 y 2009, donde las precipitaciones comenzaron a mediados de febrero, prácticamente no habría inconveniente para el mango y casi toda la producción se podría exportar.

“Si por el contrario, hay lluvias tempranas como en diciembre sí habría problemas y solamente una fracción de la producción podría exportarse, ya que las lluvias afectarían los caminos a los fundos y no podría sacarse la fruta, pero aún estamos en un escenario que nadie conoce”,
sostuvo Juan Carlos Rivera.

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 ???

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.
