A Few Mango Stats

Here's some interesting facts (some statistics are a few years old)...
  • Most of the commercial mango varieties grown worldwide for international trade were developed in Florida.
  • India produces about one third of all mangos.
  • Over ninety countries grow mangos commercially.
  • Less than 5% of global mango production is traded internationally.
  • The United States imports more mangos than any other country in the world.
  • Mangos brought into the U.S. must be dipped in hot water or irradiated.
  • U.S. domestic production of mangos is approximately 1% of its demand.
  • South Florida is the biggest mango-producing area in the U.S.
  • Locally-grown mangos are MUCH better than imported ones.
  • We are SO fortunate to live in South Florida!
