Culture - Production
Farmers that cultivate Wad’s mangoes can be found in Somanya in the eastern region of Ghana. The soil in Somanya favours the
cultivation of mangoes. The region has two seasons of mangoes per year.
Mango trees normally produce fruits after 3 – 4 years of planting. The mango season is clearly defined. The small season starts from Middle of November to early March.
The mango season is from End of May to September. However due to climatic change this period may slightly vary.
The varieties imported by Wad are: Keitt, Kent, Julie, Erwin and Palma.
All the mango fruits on the same tree doesn’t get to maturity at the same time. That’s why the fruits are not calibrated but selected according to their maturity and transported and when ripe.
