"We've had a very good year for mangoes in general. The weather conditions have been stable and the trees have been loaded with fruit," explains Borja Piedra, manager at Huerta Tropical. Thus, most of the fruit on the trees has developed properly and the number of pieces marketed as Bonbon mangoes has been reduced.
"It has been a pity not being able to meet all the orders we received, but there has simply not been enough production, unlike last year," explains Piedra. The volume that Huerta Tropical has been able to market this year has amounted to about 500 kg out of the total 12,000 kg of Irving mango; the variety from which Bonbon mangoes come.
