We’ve added the The Mangoes Database to our custom databases including some Mango specific functionality. We hope you find it useful.

Historical Type Native to the Indian subcontinent and southeast Asia, this data-point notes which of these two main types the cultivar is.
Indian – Typically they have monoembryonic seeds and tend to be more susceptible to anthracnose.
Indochinese – Typically they have polyembryonic seeds and greater anthracnose resistance.

Seed Type
Will not breed true from seed (monoembryonic)
Will likely breed true from seed (polyembryonic)

Regarding fruit maturity, per Mango Growing in the Florida Home Landscape http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg216
Mango fruits will ripen on the tree, but, are usually picked when firm and mature...The crop is considered mature when the shoulders and the nose (the end of the fruit away from the stem) of the fruit broaden (fill out). Varieties that have color when ripe may have a slight blush of color development, or they may have begun to change color from green to yellow.
