Last season a company from Huelva, Isla Canela that is dedicated to the plantation of tropical fruits managed to produce more than 300,000 kilos of a native variety of mango that has been adapted to the climate. According to the company they expect production will increase by 20 percent.
After having experimented with different varieties in recent years the head of the company who could see the idea on the cultivation of tropical fruits in the province nearly 30 years ago said that this variety has no strands is much sweeter and is smaller size.
The mangos have been well accepted in the markets. In fact this company exports 80 percent of its mango production to Northern Europe Portugal.
The variety has adapted well to the climate of the province of Huelva, Isla Canela. Last season started in August but this year it will be delayed until October because of the mild temperatures during last summer.
They also have their own citrus production including the Mano de Buda variety which comes from Thailand the citrus caviar from Australia as well as limes and tropical fruits. The plants come from international nurseries. The fruits are mostly used in restaurants. There is also an avocado plantation in the province of Huelva, Isla Canela, Gibraleon and Villablanca.
