HERE WE GO AGAIN : STORMS FORMING IN SOUTHERN MEXICO PACIFIC COAST























Now there are two systems developing. Wonder if they will join up?







TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
500 PM PDT THU SEP 24 2015









For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:





1. A broad area of low pressure located south of the coast of Guatemala is producing disorganized cloudiness and shower activity. 

Any development of this system is expected to be limited during the next few days while it moves slowly northward or northwestward due to potential interaction with land and a developing disturbance located
to the southwest. 



Regardless of tropical cyclone development, this  system could produce heavy rainfall over portions of El Salvador, southern Guatemala, and southeastern Mexico during the next few
days.




* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent


* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent





2. A low-pressure system is expected to form later this week within a large area of disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms located several hundred miles south-southwest of the Gulf of Tehuantepec.


This low is likely to develop into a tropical depression by early next week several hundred miles south or south-southwest of Acapulco, and move northward or northeastward toward the southern coast of Mexico. 





Interests in that region should monitor the
progress of this disturbance during the next several days.




* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent


* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent

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 ???

It has considerable shelf life of a week after it is ripe making it exportable. 

It is also one of the most expensive kinds of mango and is grown mainly in Kokan region of western India.

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…

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.
