Chiapas Mexico: Ataulfo mango prices plummet
























The chairman of the National Committee of the Mango Product System, Cornelio Velasquez Castro, said that Chiapas was the main producer and exporter of the Ataulfo mango variety, the fourth biggest producer of mangoes in general at the national level, and that it had positioned itself internationally.





He added that the mango prices were currently excellent; but that the producers from Chiapas were at a disadvantage because the distance they had to cover to market their product was longer than what other producers in the northern states had to cover. Thus, producers from Chiapas had to reduce local prices to remain competitive.




He also assured that they were facing serious problems due to global warming, as it now rained and was cold when it shouldn't have been, which has caused the production from Chiapas to Nayarit to become closer.




That is, currently the coast and Chiapas are in full bloom. Traditionally, Chiapas had an early harvest and was the first state to enter the national and international markets. However, the mango from Chiapas has a great acceptance for its excellent quality.




Since the production of mango has started to overlap, there is an oversupply in the market so prices collapse and producers start making losses and low returns.




Velasquez Castro said the country produced 20 million boxes for export per year and that Chiapas, depending on the climate and the technical assistance, produced about 7 to 8 million cases per year.




Finally, he said that the agribusiness for mango had not taken off because the producer's were better off selling fresh produce, as the plants in Arriaga were unique. Chiapas only exports fresh mango and its main destination is the US market because Europe is more interested in processed mangoes.

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 ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

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.

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…
