- Color change from green to yellow, and the development of “shoulders” on the stem end of the fruit are the best indicators of maturity.

- Fruit flesh turns from white to yellow starting at the endocarp and progressing outward to the skin during maturation.

- Mango fruit matures in 100 to 150 days after flowering.

- Mango fruit will have the best flavor if allowed to ripen on the tree.

- Mango is an extremely versatile fruit when it comes to processing.

- Flesh can be used for canning, juicing, drying, freezing and as fresh slices for the pre-prepared fruit salad market.

- Frozen or preserved pulp provides the raw material for use in fruit juice, yoghurt fruits and ice confectionery.

- Price of fresh mangoes in the domestic market is lower compared to its export price

- Quality and mango variety e.g. ‘Carabao’ mango as an export quality variety has higher price compared to local varieties.

- During peak season (March-June) where there is large volume available, the price of mangoes usually dropped at its lowest.

- Prices of fresh mangoes are usually dictated by traders based on competition and existing market prices.

- Prices of processed mangoes are set usually by processors based on their operating cost. Processed mangoes such as dried mangoes have high demand but with the limited supply, processors can set high price for these products.
