The people from the Philippines were not ready for that big El Niño surprise he had for them, which included millions of excess mangoes. The unusual weather was simply surprising everyone, especially the ones who were cultivating mangoes.
Emmanuel “Manny” Pinol, the agriculture secretary explained that they had a suplus of 2 million kg of mangoes at that moment. That is actually the number of Luzon currently.
Luzon is the biggest island of the Philippine archipelago, and it’s intensely populated. The island encounters an aftermath from changed climate designs.
El Niño is a move in wind designs that occurs occasionally (every 2 to 7 years). It warms the Pacific Ocean, and The Philippines get hotter flows which results in dry and warm climate.
As indicated by Pinol, the excess of mangoes is brought about by El Niño. The blossoming and fruiting season was more than effective. Clearly. Experts are currently attempting to discover an answer for the excess fruit.
The “Metro Mango” battle will incorporate selling mangoes in Manilla. Local people will likewise have the option to go to mango cooking classes (supported by the legislature, obviously). There will be a mango celebration in mid-June.
You would now be able to purchase a kilogram of mangoes for 20 Philippine pesos or $0.40. Pinol wants to move one million kilograms of fresh fruit in June.
According to the DWRS Commando Radio Global, some farms won’t make money, and won’t even try with the excess mangoes, therefore they’ve started to give away the fruit for free.
Pinol wrote on his Facebook page that the Japanese fruit importer DIamond Star Corporation, recently bought 100,000 kg of mangoes!
