MANGO CULTIVARS WITH POTENTIAL FOR COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT

R.J. Campbell, N. Ledesma
The mango industry is operating within a system dominated increasingly by high volume markets driven by chain stores in the United States, Europe and other developed economies. Such markets demand a high volume of packages, an extended availability of the same cultivar, extended storage times, consumer-attractive pricing and compliance with accepted food safety norms. ‘Tommy Atkins’, ‘Ataulfo’, ‘Kent’, and ‘Keitt’ dominate the high volume markets of the United States and Europe and there is little directed breeding aimed at developing new cultivars for the future of the industry. ‘Madame Francis’, ‘Haden’, ‘Nam Doc Mai’, ‘Osteen’, ‘Carabao’, and ‘Edward’ are all grown in existing niche markets, with ‘Alphoso’, ‘Kesar’, ‘Langra’, ‘Chausa’, Sundhri’ and ‘Cogshall’ increasingly seen in markets. In the future ‘Kent’, ‘Rapoza’, ‘Mallika’ and ‘Duncan’ have potential for large markets, with ‘Nam Doc Mai’, ‘Palmer’, ‘Kesar’, ‘Angie’, ‘Rosigold’ and ‘Shetintha’ with potential for smaller niches. For juice markets, ‘Brooks’ and ‘Panchadarakalasa’ have potential and for mature green markets, ‘Chaosavoey’ and ‘laleejeewo’ are potential cultivars.
