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.

The Ataúlfo, also called young, baby, yellow, honey,[1][2] Adaulfo,[3] Adolfo,[4] or Champagne is a mango cultivar from Mexico.[5] 






Ataulfo mangos are golden yellow and generally weigh between 6 and 10 ounces (170 and 280 g), with a somewhat sigmoid (oblong) shape[5] and a gold-blushed yellow skin.[1] 





Their buttery flesh is not fibrous, and they have a thin pit.[5][6] 




Their flesh is a deep yellow and high in sugar (15 grams per 100-gram serving), with a rich, sweet flavor.[5][6] They are rich in vitamin C and dietary fiber.[1]

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

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…
