The seasonality of mangoes vary according to the country. During the harvest season, Brazil, Mexico etc. adjust their importing schedules to avoid direct competition with Spain for Osteen mangoes.

-The short season fits perfectly well in the import supply schedule of mangoes for the EU. Supplying in the months where most other sources of mangoes are in decline. Earliest is the Osteen mango in August until November.

-During the harvest season, Osteen mangoes are so competitive that importers from Brazil, Mexico etc adjust their importing schedules to avoid direct competition with Spain and simply waits for the Spanish mango season to be over before resuming imports. As Spain increases their production, importers must bear longer and longer wait. But this is not always the case.

-In years of low Spanish mango production, Brazilian mangoes flood the EU market with low quality and low-priced mangoes, and Spanish exporters have no choice but to lower their pricing to compete in the market.

-Another drawback of betting on a single variety is that the harvest season for the entire production market is the same hence prices tend to fall when supplies are high or it can be challenging to meet some quotas for export.
