Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is the most popular fruit crop in the orient particularly in India, where it is considered as the best choice among all indigenous fruits. It occupies relatively the same position as that enjoyed by apple in temperate America or Europe. It ranks first among all the fruits of India in area and production.
Global production of mango is concentrated mainly in Asia and more precisely in India. Mango is grown in 85 countries, among which 63 countries produce more than 1000 metric tonnes in a year. In these countries, mango serves as an integral part in human life since it is not only a rich source of nutrients but also a common good shared in culture, life style and religion.
