The Mango (Mangifera indica L.), member of family Anacardiaceae, is amongst the most important tropical fruit of the world. Flowering is the first of several events that set the stage for mango production each year. Flower initiation is very important because it is the first step towards attaining fruit and it is very complex phenomena in mango. Flowering in mango trees make them especially challenging for physiologists, breeders, and growers. Mango is a terminal bearing species and the factors which determine switching from vegetative to reproductive mode are poorly understood. Biennial bearing, which means that the tree carries optimum load of crop in one year, but in the following year it fails to flower or/ and produce unsatisfactory crop. Insight into this phenomenon has been of prime interest to scientists and growers for over a century. As a consequence of efforts to elucidate the factors governing flowering and mechanisms in manipulation of flowering in mango is critically reviewed here.
