Seedling mangoes are used for two purposes in India: (1) they are eaten in the ripened state and (2) they are used for the preparation of various types of chutneys and pickles. Because of the higher prices which they fetch in the market, far greater attention has been paid to the investigation of the optimum cold storage conditions for grafted varieties of mangoes as compared to the seedling mangoes (1-7). Seedling mangoes intended for consumption in the ripened state are usually allowed to ripen on the trees and their long-term storage is rarely attempted. However, in the case of seedling mangoes intended for the preparation of chutneys and pickles the question of their preservation in a state in which they can be easily converted into these products is of considerable importance, especially from the point of view of canneries. It may be mentioned here that factoryproduced mango pickles and chutneys not only have a good home market but are exported in appreciable quantities. Since the seedling mangoes suitable for the preparation of these products are available only for a short period during the season, it is important that attention be paid to the various methods of preservation of green mangoes in a condition suitable for this purpose. This problem is being tackled at this Institute from two angles- (1) cold storage of green mangoes and (2) freezing of slices of green mangoes. The data obtained so far in connection with the former enquiry only are reported in this paper.
