Mango




The Ataúlfo: also called Young, Baby, Yellow, Honey, Adaulfo, Adolfo, or Champagne is a mango cultivated in Mexico. Ataulfo mangos are golden yellow and generally weigh between 6 and 10 ounces (170 and 280 g), with a somewhat sigmoid (oblong) shape and a gold-blushed yellow skin. Their buttery flesh is not fibrous, and they have a thin pit. Their flesh is a deep yellow and high in sugar (15 grams per 100-gram serving), with a rich, sweet flavor. They are rich in vitamin C and dietary fiber.

History

The Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (Instituto Mexicano de la Propiedad Industrial) granted the designation of origin of this fruit to the government of Chiapas. The land where this Mango was found was owned by Mr. Manuel Rodriguez until 1948 when Mr. Ataulfo Morales (who worked as a jeweler) bought the property and mango trees were already there. Since 1950 mango trees began to attract the attention of people. In 1958 the agronomist Hector Cano Flores (the discoverer of Ataulfo Mango), Head of Sector of the Mexican Coffee Institute, began to do research.

Cano made a clone of Mango Ataulfo called IMC-M2. Shortly later the whole plant material is transferred from INMECAFE (Spanish: Instituto Mexicano Del Cafe. English: Mexican Coffee Institute) to the National Commission of Pomology and went from there spreading this Mango. Years later, the grown to be known as "Ataulfo", the name by which the Cano christened this Mango.


The Ataulfo Mango species is similar to the Philippine Mango: The skin is thin, the fragrance sweet, the fiber soft, and the trees continuously bear fruit from 5 years to over 80 years--- even reaching a century at times. During the Spanish colonial period in the Philippines, the people considered the Mango the most beautiful fruit in the world

Ataulfo mangos gained popularity in the United States beginning in the late 1990s, though they have been a major crop in Mexico for decades. As of 2009, they were the second-most popular variety of mango sold in the United States, behind the Tommy Atkins.

Haden Mango

The 'Haden' mango (or, 'Hayden') became one of the most widely cultivated in the world after it was introduced in the early 20th century through south Florida. It would ultimately become the parent of many other mango types later developed in Florida.

Description: The fruit typically reaches maturity from June to July, averaging 1 to 2 pounds in weight. It is of round, oval shape and has yellow color with a red crimson blush. The flesh is slightly fibrous but has a full, sweet flavor. It contains a monoembryonic seed.
The tree is a fairly large and vigorous grower, with a rounded canopy capable of attaining heights between 20 and 30 feet.
Despite falling out of favor as a commercial production mango, 'Haden' remained one of the most widely propagated mangoes for nursery stock and home growing throughout the decades, and continues to be today.


'Haden' trees are planted in the collections of the USDA's germplasm repository inMiami, Florida the University of Florida's Tropical Research and Education Center in Homestead, Florida and the Miami-DadeFruit and Spice Parkalso in Homestead. The original tree still stands in Coconut Grove.

Tommy Atkins Mango

Tommy Atkins is a mango generally not considered to be the best in terms of sweetness and flavor, but it is valued for its very long shelf life and tolerance of handling and transportation with little or no bruising or degradation. This means it is the main mango sold in regions where mangoes have to be imported, comprising about 80% of mangoes sold in the United Kingdom and United States apart from growing regions in California, Hawaii and Florida. However in France it is sold at a discount, while the main imported mango is the Kent, considered less fibrous and tastier.

History: The original tree reportedly grew from a 'Haden' seed planted around 1922 on the property of Thomas H. Atkins of Broward County, Florida. Later pedigree analysis supported the 'Haden' parentage of 'Tommy Atkins'. Thomas Atkins submitted the fruit to the variety committee of the Florida Mango Forum multiple times during the 1950s, which rejected it due to its unremarkable eating qualities and considerable fiber in the flesh. Atkins, however, felt strongly that the fruit had good commercial potential due to its color, strong and steady production, relatively good fungus resistance, and good handling characteristics. He was able to market the fruit successfully to commercial growers, who began planting the Tommy Atkins during the 1950s. Thereafter, 'Tommy Atkins' became extremely popular as a commercial variety, eventually becoming the most commonly planted commercial mango in Florida, and later the most extensively planted in the Americas, a position it still holds today


KENT Mango

Description: The tree is a vigorous grower, with a compact canopy and an upright growth habit. It can get quite tall (in excess of 30 feet) if allowed to do so. 'Kent' trees generally produce a large crop. The fruit typically weighs 20 to 26 ounces, is of oval shape, and has a rich, sweet flavor. It will usually turn a greenish-yellow color with some red blush as it matures. The seed is monoembryonic and will have a tendency to sprout in the fruit if left on the tree too long when ripening. The fruit typically matures from July to August in Florida, sometimes into September.
