Fiji’s mango exports have not been affected by the current pandemic, as the current demand is still high. With Fiji experiencing its mango season, growers have been supplying to exporters since July.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fiji supplies most of its mangos to New Zealand but also exports to Australia, Canada and the US. Approximately 15 to 20 tons of mangos are exported in a week. Exporters buy these mangos from growers in crates, and one crate is roughly 23kg.
Fiji has five different varieties of mangoes which are juicy mango, parrot mango, peach mango, Fiji mango and the hybrid ones.
