Mexico: Mango exports to USA could decrease by 300 million pesos due to bans by USDA
























The mango and grapefruit export season is at risk because the Department of Agriculture (USDA) identified more than 190 lots of mango affected by larva that were sent in Tierra Caliente packaging during the 2015 export period, which began in February and concluded in June. 






On Tuesday, producers and politicians of the region were told about this situation at a meeting held in Nueva Italia in the state of Michoacan, Mexico.






However, mango producers from Apatzingan, Buenavista, and Paracuaro, the second municipality in the region with the highest mango production, were not present at that meeting. 






At the meeting, the representatives of the State Committee on Plant Health reported about the notice issued by the USDA, which spoke about the 192 batches of fruit with larvae detected and of the possible restrictions to this fruit during the coming season, which could also impact other products, such as grapefruit, of which the country exports more than 13,000 tons annually to Canada and Europe.





Additionally, Plant Health made it clear to those attending the meeting that they currently do not have the necessary 1,150,000 pesos required to eradicate the pest from registered and host plantations.






If the United States closes its doors to the region's mango, producers would stop perceiving about 300 million pesos for the export of over 57,000 tons of mango and 39 million pesos from the sale of 13,000 tons of grapefruit.





Since producers can't be asked to give more money than what they already do, the government must take responsibility for solving this problem that requires urgent attention.






 In view of this, Local Deputy, Raymundo Arreola, promised he would manage these resources and that he would have an answer to this situation next week in a meeting to be convened.

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 ???

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…
