Jazan mangoes: Annual production of 65,000 tons

Saudi Arabia’s Jazan region has made huge strides in developing mango cultivation, expanding its production by increasing the number of farms. One of the targets of the Saudi Vision 2030, the achievement was made through a sustainable agricultural rural development program that was launched by the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture with the aim of improving the agricultural rural sector and contributing to raising the living conditions of rural families and increasing the production efficiency, improving the lifestyle, and realizing food security.

The mango production in Jazan was 18,000 tons annually in May 2005 with the launch of the first edition of the annual mango festival. The region had 250,000 mango trees only at the time but it produced 30 varieties of mangoes. Currently, the region has 19,109 farms with more than 1,000,000 mango trees and the annual production jumped to 65,000 tons annually.
