Abstract: Potentiality of twenty four less known mango varieties was studied for twenty three quantitative characters. Wide range of variations were observed in different characters among different varieties. High yields were recorded in varieties Nababhog (134.59 kg/plant), Mithua (98.64 kg/plant) and Khota lagga (95.95 kg/plant). Fruit weight, pulp weight and fruit size were found higher in Durgabhog, Gopibhog, Dhumma, Ashu Guti and Nababhog from nutritional point of view, ascorbic acid content was satisfactory in the varieties Nababhog, Mithua, Durlavbhog, Gopibhog, Gour and Subodh Guti but TSS/acid ratio was found higher (> 80) in Baro Langra Guti, Subodh Guti, Nababhog, Dudh Kumar, Khota Lagga, Ghia, Mithua, Gour and Durgabhog. The study suggests that some of the less known varieties have good potentiality for commercial exploitation.
