Strong winds in Chiapas increase the prices of Mexico's mangoes

The strong winds in the main mango production regions of the southern Mexican state of Chiapas affected the mango crops as it caused many flowers and fruits to fall.

This state is one of the main exporters of the Ataulfo variety, so the untimely rains and strong winds have affected the quality and quantity of exports to the United States, Canada, and Europe. The losses, in turn, will lead to an increase in prices.

The most affected mangoes have been the Ataulfo and Manililla varieties. Currently, a box of each of these varieties exceeds 500 pesos. However, producers have had to harvest and market the mango faster than usual because the rains at the beginning of the year accelerated the fruit's ripening process. This means that they won't last long in the market and, having no way out, prices will tend to fall.
