Mangoes

A Review

image of Mangoes
Mango is a tropical crop whose economic utilisation could be greatly improved. This fruit represents a great proportion of the agricultural production of many developing countries and is in increasing demand in western countries. The development of a sea transportation system that could provide fruit of a consistently high quality would help to realise the potential of this commodity. This requires research and development of pre- and post-harvest technologies to improve yield, quality, disease control and fruit storage.



In this volume, research carried out worldwide concerning mangoes is presented as a series of comprehensive reviews.



This volume represents the collection of review papers presented at the Commonwealth Science Council's Meeting on Development of the Caribbean Mango Industry in Dominica in March 1987.

Introduction

Mango is one of the six major fruit crops in the world, having a world production of over 15 million tonnes per annum. The world demand for mango is increasing annually, particularly from temperate countries where it is rapidly gaining in popularity. However, compared to the information available concerning production, post-harvest treatment and processing of other major fruit crops eg. bananas and apples, there is a dearth of research-backed recommendations for the mango industry.
