The National Mango Board (NMB) has published their Mango Crop Report, which is published on a regular basis using information from industry organizations and other sources in an effort to provide the best available information on shipment projections, actual arrivals, variety and size availability, and other figures considered useful to the U.S. mango market.
Right now, Mexico, with the Michoacán, South Sinaloa, Nayarit, Jalisco and North Sinaloa regions, and Haiti are currently harvesting and packing their mangoes, and Brazil is getting ready to start its season. The three main mango varieties available in the market are Kent (52%), Ataulfo/Honey (22%) and Tommy Atkins (14%). There are also limited supplies of Keitt, Madame Francis, Haden, Manila and Nam Doc Mai.
Mexico has so far shipped a total of 51,087,417 boxes for the season, with a projection of 76 million boxes for the entire season. Haiti has shipped a total of 2,445,084 boxes so far for the season, and has projected a total volume of 2.7 million boxes for the season. The overall mango volumes shipped from week 29 (7/18/2020) to week 40 (10/3/2020) are expected to be 2% lower year-over-year, with arrivals expected from week 30 to 41. Mexico's volume for the season is projected to be about 5% lower, year-on-year, but the volume from Haiti is projected to be 40% higher, year-on-year.
The Brazilian mango season will begin the second week of August and is projected to run until the second week of December with a projection of approximately 10 million boxes. Brazil’s main varieties are Tommy Atkins (90%), Palmer (4%), Kent (3%) and Other (3%).
