Although, India is the largest mango producing country in the world and also is the home of more than 1,000 mango cultivars but the productivity of mango in our country is low. Hence improvement work for the development of mango cultivars with higher yield and productivity is the utmost importance. For successful improvement work, proper identification of genetic resources or the parental materials is the basic need. Hence, the aim of study was to identify, characterize and recommend mango cultivars to broaden the varietal spectrum. The selected samples were described for various characteristics of tree growth (tree height, shape, foliage colour and density), leaf (leaf length, leaf width, leaf area and leaf shape), fruit (length, width, weight, colour and their attractiveness) and bio-chemical attributes (total soluble solids, titrable acidity, TSS/acidity ratio, chlorophyll content & beta-carotene). Of the 8 hybrids with their parentage, only three hybrids (Hybrid 60-1, Alfazli and Prabhashankar) and one parentage Fazli showed distinctive fruit characters and market potential. The studies helped to develop suitable morphological and biochemical markers for improvement of mango germplasm to establish suitable varieties for domestic and export markets.
