It takes only 45 minutes to discover the tropical coast of Europe. From September avocadoes, mangoes and cherimoya are in their ripening season. Costa Tropical de Granada is the leading European producer and exporter of these fruits. The Mediterranean coast of Granada is a true paradise for growing fruit – in itself making this warm, quiet corner full of history well worth a visit. These tropical crops were imported here in the middle of the 20th century and the ideal climate conditions, with an mean temperature of 20ºC and 320 sunny days per year, guarantee splendid harvests.
