Abstract
Mango (Mangifera indiaca L.) is the most important fruit of India belonging to family Anacardiaceae. Flowering, the first step of sexual reproduction is of paramount importance in agriculture, horticulture and plant breeding. The change from the vegetative state to the reproductive state is one of the most dramatic events in the ontogeny of a plant. Flowering leads to an exciting succession of events like anthesis, fruit set, fruit development, maturation and ripening. It provides for the propagation of the species and assists in crop improvement through genetic recombination. Mango occupied a pre-eminent place amongst the fruit crops grown in India because of its great utility. Mango exhibits a wide variation in flowering and fruiting habit due to varietal differences and diversity in agro-climatic conditions. It is highly cross pollinated crop contains male and hermaphrodite types of flower. The flowering mechanism of mango is very complex process and so many factors like physiological and environmental are affecting on it.
