Professional Papaya growing

Papayas in El Tule - Tomatlan

You don't often see papaya trees loaded like this. We had a huge papaya orchard a few blocks away a few years ago but there were never half as many fruits per tree. Ours has since been cut down and has grown peppers and tomatoes ever since. Kids would steal a few and sell them .... yum.

The papaya production of Jalisco has benefited from the export of this fruit, albeit indirectly, as sales abroad is carried out through a Monterrey marketer who also it distributes in domestic market. 

Mexico, as a country, is the world leader in exports of papaya, taking the United States as the main destination of sales. 

The Jalisco coast, especially in the Municipality of Tomatlan, the largest harvest of this fruit in great demand in the Mexican diet is registered, and has adapted well to the tropical climate of this region, especially the variety known as Maradol. In addition, it has been very favorable seed of high genetic quality that, on average, pays off 100 tons per hectare.

Today the goons told Chely she couldn't go to work in her restaurant because they own the sidewalk and she can't cross it. Politics are everywhere right now, before the elections on June 7. It didn't make me feel very good to see Emilio Marquez (ex-governador of Jalisco, best buddies with Villalobos) supporting Enrique Alfaro. And here I thought Movimiento Ciudadano was going to be different. How naive....

The Costalegre

I have long thought that Costalegre was an agreed upon catch word for the Costa Alegre. Now I'm finding there is another long time standard, Coastecomates. This is about that area as well.

The stretch of coastline located between Costa Majahuas and Cihuatlán is the Costalegre or “happy coast.” Others describe the Costalegre as the area between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo. Either way it is still "the happy coast". Pacific Coast of Mexico
