Al aproximarse el 1 de Octubre fecha en la que el "Ruiseñor de América" don Julio Jaramillo cumpliría 80 años un grupo de amigos Zamoranos, esposas y ancianas , fanáticos todos del más grande artista ecuatoriano de todos los tiempos,nos reunimos en su tumba para rendirle un sencillo homenaje acompañados del Famoso Trio de Reinaldo Barros quienes cantaron 50 canciones de " Mister Juramento" que llamaron la atención de los deudos de un sepelio que se realizaba muy cerca quienes se vinieron también a acompañarnos...

Don Julio Jaramillo nació en Guayaquil el 1 de Octubre de 1935 y falleció en su ciudad natal el 9 de Febrero de 1.978 a los 43 años de edad.

Su sepelio al que asistí muy joven, fué el más multitudinario de la Historia de Guayaquil!

Julio Jaramillo es un ícono de la música ecuatoriana y es admirado y querido en toda América Latina donde muchos países se disputan su lugar de origen, pero él es guayaquileño de cepa!!!

Con Fernando Cespedes de Costa Rica y su esposa muy amigos de Sergio Cedeño Amador, su padre tuvo un bar en Costa Rica y fue muy amigo de Julio Jaramillo salian a trasnochar juntos, vino a Guayaquil a rendir homenaje a J.J. en nombre de su padre, se acabaron muchas botellas de whiskey

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…
