EURO MARKET : Mango market stabilising again





















“Demand and prices for airplane mangoes high”









Trade in mangoes has been very good in recent weeks. The current market situation is different compared to a month earlier when the market was still ‘screaming’ for this tropical fruit. The supply of seaborne cargo has increased again up until now. 



“Because the volumes of boat mangoes will be sufficient for now, the market will stabilise in coming weeks,” says Ive Lambert of Starfruit.




Airplane peak


Lambert indicates that demand for boat mangoes is slightly less right now, and that prices have dropped. 



“Demand for airplane mangoes, on the other hand, is very high. Currently, there is limited supply and prices have increased sharply. The smaller supply is because Ivory Coast has left the market, and just a few boats are underway, but no air cargo. I expect this will continue peaking for at least two more weeks. We already received some Mexican mangoes, but most importers will only start these in a few weeks.”


Senegal is late

In terms of origins Starfruit receives the final seaborne cargo from Ivory Coast.
“We are now also getting supply from Mali and after that Senegal will arrive. Senegal is weeks later than it was last year. I expect them to arrive at the end of July, or even the beginning of August. It is possible that Senegalese cultivators decide to start picking earlier, because there will probably be shortages again by then. Mali is not the best mango country, and there will definitely be demand. Senegal has to be careful not to start picking too soon, because that will not result in the best possible quality. A few days longer on the trees can sometimes do wonders,Lambert concludes.

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…
