The fibre-packed tropical fruit
This tropical fruit needs no introduction. We find mango in hundreds of dishes, smoothies and juices and even as an accompaniment to salads, sauces or desserts. At Agroponiente, we produce and sell up to 3 different varieties of mango: Kent, Osteen and Keitt. You will recognize the Kent mango by its red or yellow rounded oval shape with a tint of green. It has thick skin, and its juicy flesh has high sugar content. If you need to eat fibre, the Kent mango is your best bet; it eases digestion.
The Osteen mango is the second variety of mango that we produce in Agroponiente. We grow it on the coasts of Malaga and Granada. Its shape is also oval, and it is famous for its unique purple colour and tasty pulp.
The third variety we produce from Agroponiente is the Keitt mango, which has a sweet and fruity flavour and a slight acid touch.
Like melons, watermelons will also help us healthily lose weight – they’re low in calories. And there is still more! In addition, thanks to its high antioxidant content, watermelon is an ideal fruit to fight inflammation.

4 benefits that make mango an excellent fruit
- Manganese, an essential element.
Manganese is a chemical element that we find in some foods. It is essential for our body, as it helps us produce energy and protect cells. It also strengthens the bones and protects our immune system. In addition, it’s rich in antioxidants, and it’s recommended to everybody who wants to follow a healthy diet.
- The importance of vitamin A and C
Mango contains high doses of vitamin A and C. These nutrients will help us keep our skin and vision in good condition and reduce the risk of cardiovascular or degenerative diseases. Like manganese, it protects our immune system. Mango is the fruit you need to eat if you have iron deficiency.
- The many benefits of folate
Folate, or vitamin B-9, improve health in many ways. For example, they help have an optimal psychological function, protect our immune system, and make us feel less tired. We are also talking about a highly recommended fruit during pregnancy since it promotes the proper growth of maternal tissues during this stage.
- Fiber content improves intestinal transit.
This characteristic gives it laxative and intestinal regulation properties, reduces blood cholesterol, and improves glucose tolerance. And let’s not forget its tremendous satisfying effect. Therefore, it’s great to include in a balanced diet.
