Abstract

The abundance of mango varieties in India is well-known throughout the world. There are thousands of varieties in the country, practically all of which are the product of selections made from the seedling population. A few decades ago, there was a tradition of orchard plantations utilising seedling plants. Almost all varieties have one or more defects, giving rise to mango breeding efforts around the country. Various organisations have developed / identified over 60 hybrids/ selections, but only a few of these are being multiplied on a bigger scale and planted by farmers.
