The mango for example, needs half of sugar if the mangoes are ripe and are of the Axarquía, which is one of the few areas in Spain which give an impressive handles.
By contrast, plum or loquat, they need more sugar 1/4 unless fruits are very sweet.
True, jams and sold in Spain, best jams ever made, but nothing like the taste of a sweet jam. They are really easy to make and you can give out almost any fruit that you have spent some maturation.
