Title: Fruit
Issue Date: Dec-2005
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Mango (Mangifera indica Linn.) is an important tropical fruit having a huge demand in world markets. India produces around 11ยท4 million tonnes of mangoes annually while contributing meagerly in the world market, mainly because of lack of precision in sorting methods based on internal quality. Consumer preference is mainly driven by sweetness. Increase in total soluble solids (TSS), carotenoid pigments and decrease in acidity are some indicators of sweetness of mango. Presently most consumers determine these by experiencing surface firmness, gloss, aroma, flavour, etc., which is often misleading.
