Mango history and culture
The mango is thought to have originated over 5,000 years ago in the Hindo-Berma region, which extends from eastern India and southern China across Southeast Asia.
Mango seeds traveled from Asia to the Middle East, East Africa and South America beginning around 300 or 400 A.D.
The cultivation of mango began slowly moving westward with the spice trade. The Portuguese, who landed in Calcutta in 1498, were the first to establish a mango trade.
Spanish explorers brought mangos to South America and Mexico in the 1600’s.
Mango is a staple in the cuisines in all of the tropical and subtropical countries where it’s grown, from Southeast Asia to South America.
There are over 1,000 different mango varieties grown throughout the world.
The first attempt to introduce the mango into the U.S. came in 1833 to Florida. The mango has had a tumultuous history in Florida, due primarily to weather, minimizing the commercial production of the fruit in the early 1990’s.
A very small percentage of fresh mangos available commercially in the U.S. are grown in south Florida and southern California.
Harvesting and packing of mangoes
When to harvest is one of the most important decisions a grower faces when it comes to providing the marketplace with superior quality fruit.
We used the following parameters to determine if the fruit is mature and ready to harvest: fruit shape, peel color and texture, flesh firmness, flesh color, and soluble solids.
Varietal differences, growing regions, climatic conditions and growing practices also influence when the fruit is ready to harvest.
Mangos are transported to packinghouses as soon as possible and the utmost care is taken to keep them in the shade to protect the quality of the fruit.
