US: Good supplies of imported mangos

With imports of mangos from Mexico ramping up, supplies of mangos should be good in the coming weeks.

“Supplies of mangos from Mexico are increasing, but we're also going into the full season in Guatemala in the next couple of weeks,” said Patrick Dueire of Dayka Hackett. “So there will be a good amount of fruit from Mexico and Guatemala in the next few weeks.” Though Guatemala doesn't send nearly as much fruit as Mexico does, the added volume will make sure consumers will have plenty of fruit to choose from. Those consumers have kept mangos in good demand.

“We're coming to a good time of year to promote mangos,” said Dueire. “You have spring and the holidays in May.” On April 17, demand for imported mangos was reported as moderate at South Florida ports of entry and Mexico crossings through Nogales, Arizona. Demand for Ataulfos was reported as fairly good at Mexico crossings through Texas. Prices for a flat of Tommy Atkins 7s from Guatemala were between $4.00 and $5.50 at South Florida ports of entry, a carton of Tommy Atkins 7s from Mexico was between $5.00 and $6.00 at Mexico crossings through Nogales, and a flat of Haden 7s was between $5.00 and $6.00 at Mexico crossings through Texas.
