Zambales comes up with new mango variety

by Rebecca Grace S. David

Iba, Zambales (25 October) -- A new mango variety is now being propagated in Zambales.

Already known for its very sweet mangoes, the province has come up with the Sweet Elena strain, a bigger and sweeter variety, to add to the existing carabao, piko and Indian mangoes it produces.

The Sweet Elena Farm Corporation in Sabang, Sta Cruz, maintains a nursery for Elena seedlings which will be sold later to mango growers. Farm Corporation Manager Nida Malabed said that her company will advocate for the planting of this variety in the whole province as its contribution to the mango development program of Zambales.

Meanwhile, Zambales produced 13,298 metric tons of carabao mangoes last year. This harvest came from 270,099 trees planted in 7,153 hectares in the different towns.

Biggest producer was Iba which harvested 4,454 metric tons of mangoes in the 2,309 hectares it planted with the carabao variety. This was followed by Palauig with 3,486 metric tons and Sta Cruz with 1,213 metric tons.

Provincial Agriculturist Reny Mendoza added that the provincial nursery has already produced 25,000 grafted seedlings of the carabao strain till June of this year. Zambales has also provided the other provinces in the region with these seedlings. (PIA Zambales) [top]
