“Demand for mangoes in EU increasingly stronger in summer”









Carlos Andre de Faria, Sun City:


“From the start of the African season in May, mango prices have been at a stable level between 5.50 and 6.50 Euro for standard mangoes, with prices for ready-to-eat mangoes slightly higher. Demand is stable and I do not expect an increase or large volumes which could put pressure on the prices,” says Carlos Andre de Faria of Sun City in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands.





“Mainly Senegal is on the market in June and July, followed by Israel in July and August, and Spain and Brazil start from September,” Andre de Faria continued. “Traditionally, Senegal does Kent mangoes. Israel has a number of local strains – Tommy Atkins, Kent, Shelly, Keitt and Maya – of which Tommy Atkins and Keitt represent the largest volumes. Spain mostly offers Osteen mangoes, and Brazil offers Tommy Atkins, Palmer, Keitt and in later phases Kent, but by then it is already Christmas.”




Carlos Andre de Faria left Brazil for the Netherlands nine years ago, in order to start a sales office for the European market. 




The company represents one of the largest mango producers in Brazil and supplies a number of European importers and retailers of mangoes.


“In general, demand for mangoes in summer was always a bit lower, but I am under the impression that demand in the largest EU countries, such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Spain, is becoming increasingly stronger in summer.”

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 ???

Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor.

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…
