Mexico: Mango trees in the south start flowering

Since some trees started flowering, the next mango production season in the southern state could start earlier, said Ismael Diaz Murillo, a fruit producer and entrepreneur.

According to Diaz Murillo, the plots in the south of the country are all flowery, meaning that the season could start at least one month in advance.

"Here, in southern Sinaloa, some Creoles trees have begun blooming. We believe we may have an early flowering, but we will have to wait to see," he said.

Diaz Murillo said that, overall, 2015 was a good year, as there had been a good production and stable prices.

"This year was not extraordinary, but it was good. Prices were very stable and we were able to plan the export process," he said.

Diaz Murillo, who is also the CEO of Diez Azteca, said the season had also been good for exporters because of the exchange rate; however, prices were slightly low for producers.
