Indonesia is emerging as an extra customer for Australian mangoes this year.


The reopening of the Indonesian market was completed last year and there are now several companies making plans to export mangoes this coming season.

Australian Mango Industry Association (AMIA) chief executive Robert Gray said an extra market for Aussie mangoes was good news for growers.



"It's a quite an exciting opportunity for the Australian mango industry," he said.


"A year ago Australia was granted access to the Indonesian market through a new protocol, and we're now starting to see commercial players get organised this year for the first commercial shipments to go into that market."


Mr Gray said the industry would target the premium end of the Indonesian market.


He said mangoes sent to Indonesia would need to be treated for fruit fly and seed weevil prior to export, which currently could only be done via Queensland.


He said the Indonesian market had a lot of potential.



"Whilst the initial volumes will be small to moderate, we think it's a good investment in our long-term future as an industry,"
Mr Gray said.





"Developing these export markets gives us a broader spread of customers. It gives us the potential to grow our production without oversupplying our existing markets, particularly our domestic market," he said.


"There's no reason why over the next five or 10 years Indonesia can't be up there with markets like New Zealand, Malaysia, Hong Kong or Singapore, as a significant part of our trade.


"Other commodities that are grown in Australia that go into Indonesia today, it's a valuable market, and there's no reason it can't do the same from a mango perspective."





The Australian mango industry has set an ambitious goal of exporting 20 percent of the national crop each year by 2020.

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…
