Mango is one of the most important fruit crops in the tropical and subtropical lowlands. It is native to India, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Malaysia, but can be found growing in more than 60 other countries throughout the world.The mango industry in Kenya has expanded considerably over recent years, not only in size but also in the geographical location of commercial and homestead plantings.
No longer is commercial mango cultivation restricted to the Coast region, as significant plantings of improved cultivars now also exist in the Makueni county,Meru County,Murang’aCounty, Nairobi County, Nakuru County, Siaya County, Taita Taveta County, Tana River County, Tharaka Nithi County, BungomaCounty, KituiCounty, EmbuCounty, MachakosCounty, KiambuCounty among other regions.
Basically,InKenya 7 out of 8 provinces produce mangoes. But the generally arid eastern region produces 61 per cent of all mangoes, followed by Rift Valley at 30 per cent and Coast, which produces 28 per cent.As a result of this expansion, the mango fruit is becoming more popular with the local population.
Despite this increasing popularity, only a few consumers and potential growers are familiar with the characteristics of the many different cultivars of mango that are now grown and available in the country.These include Apple, Ngowe, Kent, Keitt, Tommy Artkins, Van Dyke, Haden, Sensation, Boribo, Sabine among others.Main characteristics that differentiate varieties are the fruit shape, size, aroma, sweetness, colour, fibre content, taste, seed size and resistance to diseases.
Proper selection of a mango cultivar for productionhas to take into account the following criteria:>> good adaptation to the local conditions (e.g. rainfall and dry periods)>> alternation of flowering and fruiting>> tolerance to pest and disease infections>> designated use and market requirementsThe mango is best adapted to a warm tropical monsoon climate with a pronounced dry season (>3 months) followed by rains.
However, information from other countries indicates that crops cultivated for a long time over an extended area show a high degree of diversity due to varied environmental influences.
