Abstract

The occurrence of true vivipary was observed in mango var. Amrapali cultivated under tropical eastern coastal region of India. Viviparous fruits were fully mature, relatively smaller (145 ± 6.8 g), had low pulp stone ratio (4.23 ± 0.21) and high moisture content (46.8 ± 2.3). It may be presumed that the occurrence of true vivipary in mango, a rare biological event, may be due to recalcitrant nature of seed and increase in relative humidity during fruit maturity. To the best of my knowledge this is the first record of true vivipary in mango (Mangifera indica).
