The varietal evaluation study was conducted on 43 mango cultivars at Horticulture Research Centre, G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, Uttarakhand. The fruit shape, weight, size, pulp stone ratio, fibre content, lenticels density and other surface morphological traits of different varieties were evaluated in Randomized Block Design for two consecutive years i.e. 2012-13 and 2013-14. Significant variations were observed among the varieties for the various attributes studied. The fruit shape of different varieties varied from circular to broad elliptic, with few varieties exhibiting medium elliptic shape. The entire course of study as well as the pooled results indicated that the variety Haathijhool was most promising in terms of fruit weight (1906.30 g), size (199.06 mm length and 128.95 mm breadth) and pulp stone ratio (10.50). However, the variety was also adjudged as most fibrous with a fibre content of 5.35 per cent.
