Differential softening and physico-chemical changes in the mesocarp of ripening mango fruit



Differential softening and physico-chemical changes in the mesocarp of ripening mango fruit



Acta Horticulturae ( 269): 233-239



Ripening disorders, characterized by uneven softening, are often observed in mango fruits. Softness was measured in mesocarp samples taken from different parts of the fruit of 4 cultivars at different stages of ripeness. In the fully ripe fruit, the inner mesocarp was significantly softer than the outer mesocarp. The difference was greater in cultivars Harumanis and Mulgoa than in Kensington and Haden.
