Tropical fruit sales in the US are back on track after contracting by 2 per cent in 2014. Two reports published by the National Mango Board and Nielsen-Perishables Group show that the category grew by 11 per cent overall in 2015.

Mangoes led the charge, accounting for 44 per cent of dollar sales in the category. After an 8 per cent decline in 2014, weekly dollar sales per store increased 6 per cent, while volumes increased 16 per cent following a decline of 13 per cent in 2014.

However, the average retail price per mango fell by 8 per cent in 2015 to US$0.98. East North Central had the largest dollar increase, up 13 per cent to US$173 mango dollars per store per week.

Most regions saw an increase in sales value and volume, with only New England declining in both compared to 2014.

The Performance Benchmark Report and the Mango Market Development Index Reports were created using FreshFacts (registered) data, comparing 2015 mango scanner data to 2014.

The Mango Performance Benchmark Report breaks down mango sales, volume and pricing by quarter and sub-region, and dives into both organic and fresh-cut trends.

 The Mango Market Development Index Report ranks the nine sub-regions and 48 ScanTrack markets by mango sales per capita.

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 ???

GMO MANGOES : Philippines has been working on it since 2000 ...

The genetic engineering used in modifying mangoes is extremely similar to that of the papaya. 

This is because both mangoes and papayas posses the ACC (ACS2) gene. 

This gene is responsible for producing ethylene and the influence of ethylene on the fruit is that it controls the ripening and senescence after the fruit has been picked. 

The main purpose of this genetic modifying is to reduce the amount of ethylene produced and to lengthen the onset of this gas. 

Scientist extract this gene from ripe mango var 'Caraboa' and after they separate the gene it is then cloned and sequenced. They can then insert the isolated gene back in the genome and it will act as a disturbance to the enzyme calling for more ethylene to be produced. 

Alternately, an ACC deaminase gene is inserted and its function is to convert ACC into a different substance which results in less ethylene being produced. 

Since genetically modified mangoes are on the market, scientists are free to explore other more effic…
