Mango - the King of the Fruits
Mango consumption is increasing in the United States, but many consumers aren't aware of the depth of quality available from the world's best mangoes. Our work with mango includes building genomic, genetic, and phenotypic tools to select superior mango cultivars and guide the development of new cultivars.
Mango Collection at UF TREC
We have over 140 mango cultivars in the collection at the University of Florida Tropical Research and Education Center. We have access to hundreds of additional cultivars in southern Florida through our collaborators. These cultivars represent a large portion of the available genetic diversity for disease resistance, agronomic traits, and fruit quality.
