Mangoes

A Review

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.
