The annual production of Mexican mango exceeded 2.23 million tons through November 2023, breaking the record set last year, as reported by El Economista, using figures from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (Sader).

This volume exceeded the 2.16 million tons harvested in the same period of 2022, the agency detailed in a statement.

“According to preliminary data from the Agri-Food and Fisheries Information Service (SIAP), in 2013 1,604,000 tons were recorded and towards November 2023 a sustained growth of around 39 percent is observed,” the statement said.

Sader attributed the increase to the 5 percent increase in the surface area allocated by producers for mangos, which totaled 219,452 hectares.

Furthermore, in the same period, the average yield per hectare went from 10.83 tons to 10.85 tons, the federal agency stated.

Sinaloa is the state with the highest production, contributing 475,324 tons; followed by Guerrero, with 417,209 tons; Nayarit, with 323,117 tons; Chiapas, with 272,151 tons, and Oaxaca, with 213,960 tons.

Among the five states, they contribute 76 percent of national production.

“80 percent of mango cuts are achieved from April to August. As Mexico is a world power producer of the fruit, with high mobilization capacity, it also makes the largest shipments abroad in those months,” added Sader.

The agency estimated that Mexicans consume approximately 13 kilograms each year, and mangos have 9 percent of the share in national fruit production.
