At present the Diputación is involved in a campaign to promote the mangoes of the Axarquía with numerous events.
The mango harvest began in Malaga province a few weeks ago, and the Asaja young farmers’ association says the quality is extremely high despite this year’s fruit being slightly smaller due to the high temperatures by day and night in the summer. Asaja believes the harvest will be a bit bigger this year than it was last year, when about 28,000 tonnes of mangoes were picked and put on sale.
