Despite the recognized high quality of many well-known mango cultivars, considerable cultivar improvement is still needed in most regions of culture before anything approaching perfection is likely to be achieved (Table 3.1). For any given area, cultivars that combine adequate resistance to disease and packing and shipping stress, regular heavy production, high quality, and attractive appearance throughout a long bearing season are all requisites. Production of seedlings from controlled crossing of different parents having desired characters, followed by vigorous selection and evaluation of the resultant selections, can produce such improved cultivars. Pursuit of common goals, including the cooperative exchange and testing of elite germ-plasm in different regions of production, can accelerate progress towards this objective (Lavi et al., 1989, 1993; Knight, 1993). Such interregional and international activities are to be encouraged because of their potential for advancing mango production and utilization in the world.
