    (University of Hawaii, 1993-04) Paull, Robert E.
    Mango postharvest characteristics as described in the world literature were reviewed. Work in Hawaii on the postharvest life of mangoes had been limited by lack of sufficient quantity of a selected variety, as there is varietal variation in susceptibility to postharvest disorders. It was suggested that a choice of one, two, or three varieties for commercial purposes was critical to development of a Hawaii mango industry.
