Chilean mango imports rise six-fold since 2009



















September 10th, 2015











Chile has significantly increased its mango import volumes over recent years, as its neighbor to the north continues to boost production.







Imports by the South American country rose from 766 metric tons (MT) in 2009 to 4,796MT in 2014, according to the country’s Office for Agricultural Research and Planning (ODEPA).






The increased exports can largely be attributed to Peru, which in 2014 had a 74% share of the Chilean market, followed by Ecuador with 15% and Brazil with 10%. It should be noted only 3% of Peru’s mango exports are destined for Chile.




Ecuador overtook Brazil as the second-biggest supplier to Chile in 2014.





Peruvian shipments to Chile start around the month of October and extend until March, after which time the volumes decrease significantly.





Production had been growing rapidly in Peru, although in 2014 hit a setback as climatic conditions affected the flowering process.





Wholesale prices in Chile from January to August 2015 were on average US$2.2 per kilogram, putting them substantially higher than the previous two years. The 2014 average was US$1.6, while in 2013 it was US$1.7.




Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF) prices have also been progressively increasing, rising from US$0.84 per kilogram in 2010 to US$1.27 in 2014.

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…
