Did you know that most of the mangoes and avocados that we eat in Spain are produced on Granada’s Costa Tropical?
The Costa Tropical is the coastal area that covers the province of Granada and part of Malaga, in southern Spain. This area is protected from the north wind by the Sierra Nevada but also receives the humidity from the Mediterranean Sea and the warm air from North Africa. All these elements combine to create a microclimate thanks to which Granada enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year. On top of that, it has an annual average temperature of 20 degrees and it’s the city with one of the warmest winters in Europe.
All these elements allow farmers to plant a great variety of tropical fruits so people can enjoy the best mangoes and avocados in autumn, as well as other fruits such as pitahaya and kumquat.
