US: Light-to-moderate supplies of imported mangos

Supplies of South American mangos in the United States are currently light-to-moderate. As of earlier this month, imports from Brazil and Ecuador have lagged behind those posted last year.

By the week ending November 8, 2014, almost 3.0 million boxes of mangos have been shipped to the United States from Ecuador. That's more than a million boxes less than were shipped in the same week last year. By the first week of November in 2013, Ecuador had shipped 4.4 million boxes of mangos to the United States.

Similarly, imports from Brazil have been lighter this year, though not by as much as imports from Ecuador have been. While 5.3 million boxes of mangos have been shipped to the U.S. from Brazil as of November 8, 2014, 5.7 million boxes were already shipped last year by the first week of November.

On November 14, 2014, prices for a flat of Tommy Atkins 7s were between $5.25 and $7.00 at the Philadelphia port of entry. At the Southern California port of entry, a flat of Tommy Atkins 7s from Ecuador were between $7.50 and $9.50.
