India is bestowed with a wide range of climatic conditions which is most suitable for cultivation of horticultural crops such as fruits, vegetables, flowers etc. The production of horticultural crops has been increased by 30 per cent in last five years. The continuous raise in the production of horticultural crops placed India 2nd most horticultural crop producing country after China. Horticulture has improved economic status of farmers, seasonal availability of fruits throughout the year increased per capita consumptionof fruits. Among fruits mango is the major fruits in terms of area and production and regarded as national fruit of India and it has developed its own importance all over the world.
