EXPECT MANGO SUPPLY TO TIGHTEN FOR NEXT SIX WEEKS



















Sjoerd Meijer, Fruitmarket:
"Mango very popular this week"






According to Sjoerd Meijer of import company Fruitmarket the mango was very popular product last week.
"The volumes which arrived were less than in previous weeks. This was due to the Fruit Logistica, as less fruit is sent then in general."



He indicates that there are more containers coming in again next week. 

"I expect the demand to become slightly less, but continue to be good. At the moment the main origin on the market is the Peruvian mango. It is possible that a lost Brazilian mango might be found. It's raining in Brazil at the moment, so there are no more mangos available for export."



Better prices


Sjoerd says that the prices for Peruvian mangos were disappointing at the start of this year.


"This was to do with a large supply. There were a lot of mangos coming from both Brazil and Peru. At the moment prices are going up again and are making between 4.50 and 6 Euro." 


The trader expects that the prices will remain the same next week as this week. "I think that little will happen over the next few weeks as far as price is concerned. It might go up a little."

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…

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.
