Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is having enormous diversity in its taste, flavour and fruit form. Their taste and flavour were unique to particular region. The Western Ghats region of Karnataka is having large diversity of unique pickling type mango, called Appemidi (tender mango). Because of unscientific management and with rapid deforestation in several of these areas, an exploratory survey was conducted in Western Ghat regions of Chikmagalur to conserve these unique types and also to review the morphological traits. This resulted in collection of 40 unique accessions which have been grafted and conserved in field gene bank nursery. The outcome of this study not only promote some accessions domestication but also can be used in further breeding programme.
