To the astonishment of most North Americans, mangoes are consumed around the world to the factor of three to one over bananas and twelve fifty on apples. Although mangoes are still considered exotic fruit in America, ranking as number 24 of the top 25 fruitsconsumed in the United States, which will be listed as staple food in India, Southeast Asia, China and Latin America, often act as “king of fruits”. Obviously there are many remote corners of the world something to be discovered in North America learned!

One thing they all have in common, their nutritional value, mangoes are a fantastic resource forVitamins C and E, niacin, potassium, iron and beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body.

Okay, now we know what must be the most popular fruit in the world, we determine where in the world these mangoes come. Mangoes are grown in the tropics, but India is by far the largest producer and consumer of mangoes in the world. Indeed, for more than 6,000 years, mango trees is a status symbol in India. Behind India are other areas of South Asia and parts ofAustralia. It was not until the 19th Century, mangoes were imported in parts of Africa, South America, Hawaii, and Mexico.

For years, India did not negotiate for the export of mangoes to the United States, but were only recently some agreements have already been completed, paving the way for export of mangoes from India to the United States. In return, will allow the United States, peas, beans, almonds, export, and one might think that the Harley Davidson in India. OfMangoes, which are currently their way in the United States and Canada, approximately 80% from Mexico, with most growth in the Mexican state of Nayarit, located on the same latitude as Hawaii.

Nayarit, one of the 31 states of Mexico, is located in the Pacific Ocean, with its southern border with the State of Jalisco is located. The beautiful tourist resort destination and retirement community of Puerto Vallarta lies on the border of two states, with the downtown area or El Centroin Jalisco and Nuevo Vallarta located in Nayarit. Puerto Vallarta is located on the northern edge of the Mexican Riviera and only recently were the state is practically eliminated, the national tourism and Development Board of Mexico, has coined the term Riviera Nayarit for that section of pristine and majestic Pacific coast in Nayarit . When is a note of interest, recently, states have been virtually eliminated billions of dollars for a 15-year development program that includes more than 20,000 new condos andVillas with related infrastructure. The whole area is with mango orchards where approximately 1.5 million tons of mangoes are grown each year so that Mexico’s third largest producer of mangoes after India and China.

After the vacation in Vallarta two or three times a year for 15 years, we decided to move in 1997 and make our permanent retirement destination Vallarta. We have our dream villa on the mountainside with a panoramic view of the Bay of Banderasin an area known as the Beverly Hills of Vallarta. One of our first projects was to landscape the lot ½ acre mountain. With plenty of tropical flowers and fruit trees available, the choice of plants was difficult and a bit ‘overwhelming.

After living in the United States for 55 years, we had practically nothing about the qualities that mangoes had to offer. Because of their abundance in local supermarkets, we decided to try it. To our surprise, were absolutelydelicious, perhaps better than any other fruit we’ve ever had! A decade later, after enjoying a constant supply of mangoes for ten years, it is difficult to imagine that we have gone through life without enjoying mangoes and many other Americans who have lost on this experience.

Okay, back to the landscape project. Since we have so many positive qualities that mangoes have been offered and introduced, we decided to plant some mango trees and were in a nursery in Nayarit, director of10 miles from home. The kindergarten was on the edge of a huge mango orchard where mangoes, because the eye is increased.

The owners of the orchard / nursery gave us a short presentation on mangoes, briefly outlining the differences between the varieties grown. After the presentation, asked us why we think mango trees. We told them that we loved the taste of mango and landscaping our new yard and it was thought it would be nice to have fresh mangoes available.As is typical in Mexico has sold, but to us some mango trees, they suggested to save time, effort and money, and only to help ourselves mangoes. They pointed out to the orchard and indicated that there are millions of mangoes and that we have something we wanted for free, would also help to fill the car when we need help! We never buy the trees, but they have an unlimited supply of these delicious mangoes!

This is one of our first experiencesVallarta in Mexico as it is hospitality. No wonder that Puerto Vallarta was selected as the city more welcoming destination in the world by a recent poll conducted by readers of Conde Nast. One reason for the friendliness of the area is probably perfect for the climate. Not only perfect for mangoes, but with an average daily temperature of 73 ° C for seven months of the year, is perfect for its residents.
