Los productores peruanos de mango antes del inicio de floración se mostraban positivos para la campaña 2015/2016, a pesar de la amenaza latente del fenómeno de El Niño.

Ahora la temporada ya está próxima a comenzar, y se prevé una buena producción, confirmó a Portalfruticola.com el gerente general de la Asociación Peruana de Productores y Exportadores de Mango (APEM), Juan Carlos Rivera.






Rivera especificó que no se trata de una campaña récord como la que tuvieron hace dos años, pero que sí se espera una buena temporada que podría llegar a las 140 mil toneladas.






Agregó que el fenómeno de El Niño que se esperaba con gran cobertura, no les ha afectado en sus cultivos de mango y que tomaron las medidas preventivas necesarias en el caso que las lluvias amenazaran la producción.



“Se han tomado precauciones para proteger el patrimonio de la industria y también a las personas”, dijo, y destacó que si para esta campaña no lloviera, se hablaría de una producción excelente.




En términos de exportación, el año pasado Perú envió el 50% de su producción a otros países, superando a otros años en los cuales se llegó al 30%. Sin embargo, explicó que para esta temporada aún es difícil dar una cifra estimativa del volumen que se podría destinar a exportaciones.




Además, agregó que el mango es un producto que se envía tanto como fruta fresca y como procesada, y que en este último, cumple una función importante para las exportaciones, principalmente destinadas a EE.UU. y Europa.






En cuanto al mercado chileno –que se presenta como destino interesante para el mango importado-, Rivera señaló que ya se aceptó el mango peruano dentro de la dieta de ese país, pero que aún puede producirse una evolución en cuanto a la mejora y calidad del producto.

“Los chilenos aún no prueban el mejor mango de Piura, que puede llegar a ser algo mucho mejor”, concluyó.

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.

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.
