This is the most memorable and emotional pitch in Shark Tank history and one of the best pitches ever. 

Tree-T-Pee (TreeTeePee), from Shark Tank Season 5 Episode 7, the device for watering trees more efficiently for agribusinesses, made most of the Sharks cry and so do the audience. It shows that doing business and doing good for society can come together. Tree-T-Pee is the smart choice. It's a water containment system that saves water, protects trees from frost and grows stronger trees.

Tree-T-Pee was on Shark Tank Season 5 Episode 7 (November 2013.) The Sharks were Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner and John Paul DeJoria. It made a deal with John Paul DeJoria, who just came to Shark Tank as a guest Shark.

US: Peruvian mango imports pick up, prices strong

Although still behind the pace set last year, imports of mangos from Peru increased during the first part of January. 

For the week ending January 17, 2015, about 1.3 million boxes of mangos had been shipped from Peru. That's slightly above the 1.2 million boxes shipped during the same week in 2014.

 Despite that bump in shipments, the almost 3.0 million boxes of mangos shipped by January 17, 2015 still trail the 5.4 million boxes that were shipped last season by January 17, 2014.

Average prices at South Florida and Southern California entry ports this month have been significantly higher than prices from January of last year. 

While for the week of January 17, 2015, the average price per box of Kent mangos was $9.69 and $10.50 at the South Florida and Southern California ports of entry, respectively, those average prices were $5.86 and $5.02 for the same week in 2014. 

Similarly, for the week of January 17, 2015, the average price per b…
