CHIAPAS : HOME OF THE ATAULFO MANGO



















The Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (Instituto Mexicano de la Propiedad Industrial) granted the designation of origin of this fruit to the government of Chiapas






The land where this Mango was found was owned by Mr. Manuel Rodriguez until 1948 when Mr. Ataulfo Morales (who worked as a jeweler) bought the property and mango trees were already there. 




Since 1950 mango trees began to attract the attention of people. 




In 1958 the agronomist Hector Cano Flores (the discoverer of Ataulfo Mango), Head of Sector extinct Mexican Coffee Institute, began to do research. 



The Engineer Cano made a clone of Mango Ataulfo called IMC-M2. Shortly later the whole plant material is transferred from INMECAFE (Spanish: Instituto Mexicano Del Cafe. English: Mexican Coffee Institute) to the National Commission of _________ and went from there spreading this Mango. 



Years later, the grown to be known as "Ataulfo", the name by which the Engineer Cano christened this Mango.[citation needed]




Another possible explanation for the existence of these Mango is the fact that Chiapas, together with Guerrero, Sinaloa and Jalisco were the provinces where Filipinos settled after participating in the Manila Galleon trade. 




It could be that Filipino mestizo families planted these trees. 



The Ataulfo Mango species is similar to the Philippine Mango: The skin thin, the fragrace sweet, the fiber soft, and the trees continuously bear fruit from 5 years to over 80 years--- even reaching a century. 



During the Spanish colonial period in the Philippines, the people considered the fruit Mango the most beautiful fruit in the world.




 Before the Americans invaded in 1898, Filipinos would call their women, "bonita" or "bella" or "guapa"--- but the most beautiful they would say "Que manga es!"--- similar to how Mexicans would say the phrase.
