MANGO SEASON IN FLORIDA : Event to celebrate all things mango




Did You Know ?

This area was once called "Mangonia".

If you love mangos, here’s a free festival just for you.



On Saturday, the city will host The Lake Worth International Mango Festival for the first time. 


The event will be held at the Cultural Plaza from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and celebrate all things mango.




The Lake Worth International Mango Festival hits the Cultural Plaza on Saturday.




Look for mango cuisine, mango products, mango beverages and even a mango painting class. Live music is also on tap. There will also be a class on mango education that will show people who are allergic to mangos how they still can enjoy them. More than 30 vendors are expected to showcase their mango products.





The festival has been held in Miami and West Palm Beach in previous years. Patti Sheldon, one of the event’s coordinators, said Lake Worth is the perfect location.





“There are so many mango trees in people’s yards and so many mangos dropping from them,” Sheldon said.



“I thought it would be great to hold the festival in Lake Worth so we can do something about it and collect the mangos and give them to people.”

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

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…
