Abstract

Freshly harvested mangoes were graded into 3 groups on the basis of sp. gr. They were allowed to ripen at room temp. (26 plus/minus 2 degree C). Fruits were evaluated for their acceptability on the 14th day. Chemical analysis was carried out for acidity, total sugars, total soluble solids, starch, and carotene. It was observed that the fruits having sp. gr. in the range 1 to 1.02 at harvest were at the optimum stage of maturity. Changes in pectin fractions and pectin methylesterase activity have also been noted.
