Perú: Los productores de mango se protegen contra El Niño
















Para la presente campaña de mango existen las mejores expectativas, porque la planta ha tenido buena floración, los frutos han crecido bien y fácilmente se podría superar la campaña de 2014-15, señala el presidente de la Asociación de Productores y Exportadores de Mango APEM, Juan Carlos Rivera.




Sin embargo, añade que está la gran incógnita sobre cuándo se iniciará la temporada de lluvias por efecto del Fenómeno El Niño, y los resultados de la campaña pasan a depender de esto, dice Rivera.



“En el mejor de los casos es que llueva en febrero, porque para esa fecha ya habremos realizado el 90% de la campaña, pero si llueve antes, será difícil llegar a la meta, porque ya no se podría cosechar para exportar. Además, no se puede exportar en plena lluvia porque no se cumpliría con los requisitos fitosanitarios, por el tema de la plaga de la mosca, hongos y bacterias, que afectan la calidad de la fruta”,
explica.




Nos hemos preparado



Juan Carlos Rivera indica que ante los pronósticos de El Niño, los productores y exportadores de mango en la región han tomado precauciones para proteger sus plantaciones, así como las plantas empacadoras y los almacenes. También han construido drenes frente a las lluvias.
“Estamos preparados”, dice.




Sin embargo, destaca que ante la expectativa de las lluvias muchos han adelantado la cosecha, pero
“si el mango no está fisiológicamente maduro llegará malo a su destino y esto podría malograr el mercado, porque desmerecerán la buena reputación del mango peruano”, indica preocupado.





Añade que los productores conocen las técnicas para cosechar y está en sus manos cuidar el mercado, porque el principal perjudicado será el mismo productor, ya que no recibirá el precio pactado.

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 ???

Alphonso (mango)

Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor.

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…
