Abstract: Observations were taken on 42 cultivars of mango collected from all over the country on various characters including vegetative growth, flowering and fruit characters, to obtain information on the extent of variability and also to help in selection of cultivars for specific purposes. The data were taken on seven year old trees. Wide variability was observed for number of growth flushes, length of shoots put forward in a year, time of flowering, length of panicles, initial fruit set, fruit number per panicle and date of harvest. The number of fruits per tree ranged from 5.0 in Langra to 247.5 in Pacharisi. In terms of fruit number. Chandrhkaran, Gola, Himayat pasand, Hyder Sahebi, Kallapadi, Kasturimamidi, Lazat Baksh, Neelum, Pacharisi, Padiri and Panakalu were found to be promising. In terms of fruit weight, Amini, Hyder Sahebi, Kallapadi, Kasturimamidi, Lazat Baksh, Neelum, Pacharisi, Padiri and Panakalu were found to be promsing. The weight of the fruit was found vary from 63 g in Chandrhkaran to 647g in Amini. The percentage of pulp in a fruit ranged from 39.7 (Chandrhkaran) to 74.1 (Fazli). It was found that the cultivars Fazli, Himayat Pasand, Kallapadi, Padiri and Panakalu yielded maximum pulp per tree. The pulp : skin + stone ratio (edible to non-edible portion) was found to range from 0.65:1 in Chandrhkaran to 2.86:1 in Fazli. The total soluble ranged from 12.8º in cultivar Amini to 29.2º in cultivar Chandrhkaran. The acidity was found to be the least in cultivars Banganapalli, Imam Pasand, Lazath Baksh and Peddarasam (0.06%), whereas it was maximum in cultivar Suvarnarekha (0.65%). The total sugar content was found to range from 8.03 in Fazli to 20.41 percent in Rataul. Panakalu (17.63%), Amarapalli (17.24%), Langra (15.78%), Kallapadi (15.75%) and Dashehari (15.50%) also had high total sugar content. The sugar: acid ratio was found to range from 16.66:1 in Mohammada Vikarabad to 270.66:1 in Rataul. Cultivars Lazath Baksh (257.3:1) and Rataul (270.6:1) recorded high ratio.
