Volume set to build on imported Mexican mangos

Supplies of imported mangos into the U.S. should increase shortly.

“Right now there have been a lot of mangoes from other countries such as Peru and other countries” says Carlos Villa of Rio Rico, Ariz.-based Higueral Produce Inc. “But this week it appears that all those places are over and it’ll leave Mexico as the only place with fruit.”

Mexico will import varieties such as Ataulfo or honey mangoes, Tommy Atkins and Haden. “The mangoes usually come from different producing areas such Chiapas, Oaxaca and Michoacan,” says Villa.

Pricing pick up
With supply building, Villa says the price should start increasing as well. “Right now Ataulfos are tight but Tommy Atkins and Hadens should start to pick up for next week and I hear it’ll raise the price,” says Villa. To date, pricing on mangoes has seen some fluctuation but Villa anticipates pricing should settle in at a steady rate for at least another month.

Pricing is also slightly higher than this time last year. “The week of the 9th, pricing was 20 percent higher than last year,” Villa says, it should start to pick up the prices.
