Mexican mango volumes up on last year
























The Mexican mango season is about to start, and prospects point to a greater production than in the previous campaign. 


"We'll start on 8 April and we have already scheduled the first shipment," affirms Nadia Martínez, of BQ Fruits.


"We will ship about 30 to 40 pallets per week. At first, we'll start with 6 pallets per week and we'll gradually increase the volume. If we have enough availability, we should reach 50 pallets per week,"
she continues. She expects the season to come to an end in August.

Production is expected to increase compared to the previous campaign, which started slowly, without much availability until May-June, but Martínez believes that the peak this season will be recorded much earlier. 


"We want to start in April with the variety Haden; we will then move on to the Tommy Atkins and we'll finish with the Kent," explains the exporter.


BQ Fruits exports most of its mangoes to the European market, especially Spain, the Netherlands and France. 


Martínez also mentioned a potential customer in the UK and plans to enter Japan. 



Since the Peruvian season is over, their biggest competitor is Senegal, along with other countries, such as Ivory Coast, Brazil and Costa Rica, which supply other mango varieties, but at a lower price.


"Above all, we want to offer high quality to our customers. We want them to know they are paying for a quality product, fresh and ready to eat,"
explains Martínez. 


"Rather than competing on prices, I think we compete in quality, in the way we work and, above all, in how much we look after the mango ripening process."


The company wants to seek new markets in the future as Italy and the United Kingdom with the Ataulfo ​​variety.


"It is another variety, sweeter and fibrous, but which we believe can also be successful," she concludes.

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…
