Malaga province's mango harvest officially finished last week with 23,645 tonnes of the sub tropical fruit being registered since the season began in August. Picking reaches a peak September and October.
The results are 35 per cent down on 2018 when a record 36,000 tonnes were collected.
According to growers' associations this was in part due to a natural flux in mango harvests in the province, meaning that yields are bigger and smaller in alternate years.
Low temperatures and other issues also contributed to the smaller harvest. The crop has tripled over the last decade.
